Neither of the girls, aged 15 and 16, were reported missing, Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said earlier.

Williams said government was confident that law enforcement would do everything possible to bring the killer or killers to justice.

“Government has put in place systems such as the Constitution, supporting legislation, policies and programmes aimed at fighting crime in our country.”

She appealed to the public to work with authorities to help find those responsible.

Earlier, Makhubela said the teenagers were still dressed in their school uniforms when their bodies were found.

“They had cuts on their hands and necks. Razors, candles and their schoolbags were found next them.”
