Hunt on for killers of orphaned children

2012-08-20 13:00

Johannesburg - The search continued on Monday to find those responsible for the death of three orphaned children in Naboomspruit, Limpopo police said.

Brigadier Hangwane Mulaudzi said the manhunt was still on for the killers of the two boys and a girl whose bodies were found on Saturday.

The children had been reported missing after they did not return to the Montadi Youth Care Centre where they lived.

Bafana Kekana, 9, Hosea Richard Kekana, 10, and Johana Kekana, 12, were last seen on Wednesday at the Dikobo Primary School during a march to demand more teachers.

Bafana and Hosea were brothers. The boys' mother was Johana's aunt.

A passerby found the bodies near the Constantia resort.

Their hands and feet were tied up with shoe laces. They had been stoned to death and the girl had been raped before she was killed.

    This is horrendous - where do people come from who do this to others.

      They live among us. Orphans are treated like disposable refuse.

      Zim, Mpumalanga or KZN. I can put my knaters on the blokie.

      They walk among us every day I am afraid. The scary thing about psycho's are that they look just like the rest of us. I hope they get the bastard/s responsible for this. I wish it were the rope...

    What kind of people would do something so terrible to these kids?....Bring back the death penalty !

      Death is to quick for these type of people. Old disused mine shafts should be used to house these vermin. No day light and no communication to the outside world. One way in and no way out.

  • drishworth - 2012-08-20 13:31

    None of us can begin to imagine the terror and fear these kids must've gone through............ the brutality and callousness that is displayed daily in this country is beyond belief. This incident is particularly horrific. The victims were just kids. I'm deeply saddened and stunned. May their souls rest in peace.

    This is Zuma and ANC legacy. Its what they want. There are no consequences and even if these thugs are caught and imprisoned, Zuma will pardon them soon as he WANTS these criminals out of the streets.

    May these poor kids rest in peace. This country is full of psychos!

  • lmanonose - 2012-08-20 14:48

    I think the country needs a referendum asap on bringing the noose,guillotine,or the electric chair back.God gave us the 10 commandments because we had failed to fear and respect him and his creation.Once again we have failed to respect God's creation by our collective failure as society and the only way to redemption for us is to confront this evil by putting in place harsh penalties to those serpent like morons who run about raping,violating and murdering children.May innocent souls rest in peace

    It's the nature of the "Beast" (in the DNA) - Murderers, Rapists and Thieves without moral conscience

  • lee.theron.9 - 2012-08-20 15:11

    If I did not read this with my own eyes, I would not believe that someone or some can be capable of such horrific acts. I feel sick inside.

    we have lost humanity
