A 20-year-old man was arrested on Monday, after confessing to killing three elderly women and a teenager in Hazyview, Mpumalanga police said.

"The man broke the silence and explicitly explained to the police that he was the one who killed all four victims," said police spokesperson Leonard Hlathi.

The man had been handed over to the police by his uncle.

On Saturday, a 16-year-old girl was found dead in the street after she was last seen at a local tavern.

A 58-year-old woman was found killed in her house last month.

She was raped, strangled and her head was beaten with a hammer.

Earlier last month, two women aged between 75 and 82 were found hacked to death at their house in Mkhuhlu township near Hazyview.

The man would appear in the Calcutta Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, said Hlathi.
