Durban - A man taken in for questioning in connection with the murders of a tuck shop owner and her five children in Inanda, Durban, has been released, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Wednesday.

Police spokesperson Vincent Mdunge said the man was released due to insufficient evidence against him.

The man was taken in for questioning on Sunday - the same day the bodies of 38-year-old Nobuhle Leneha and her five children were found by her brother-in-law in her house.

The only survivor was a toddler, believed to be between 14- and 17-months-old. He was found strapped to his mother's corpse.

The children were Khalalelo Bobora, 14, Tumelo Bobora, 9, Karabo Bobora, 7, Simpiwe, 5, and 3-year-old Takiso Bobora. All had been stabbed several times.

Mdunge said the woman's husband was away at the time of the murders, believed to have been committed on Saturday.

    Oh My Word another poor child without a mother and under the age of two and strapped to the mothers dead body what kind of person does that.? Lets just hope the person gets caught and gets what is coming to him because those children didn't ask to be murdered they were innocent and now a single father will have to bring that poor baby up by himself.

    Condolencies to the family that has lost so many family members killed by this lunatic criminal. I wish that he will caught soon and face the music. We do not need people like him in our society. But this shows that criminals are there and they are a threat to every living human being. No race boundaries. We need to fight all sought of crime as south africans and acknowledge all the criminal activities as something that affect everyone in the country. Not project our frustrations and to other races orchastration by some parties. If we can put our energy and mind to crime combat we will with against these criminals.

    Geeeeeez we have lunatics and our justice system is failing us...probably the investigators were bhabalazed and couldn't put time on this case. Even farmers are not killed like this.

    Police do not know how to investigate serious and violent cases. They like confessions. No confession, no conviction.

    Please, please let this vicious killer be shot by the police for resisting arrest, otherwise he will be out in a few years. Our justice system sucks.

    The justice system has been politicised and weakened by Zuma and we still don't have the head of the NPA and SIU and we have a bank manager for police commissioner So what did u expect?

    Its times like these, that calls for Bheki Cele. He was a threat to the criminals. Lets give a credit to a man without. He was always on TV and radio his presence was felt to the public and obviously by the criminals. I am not noticing the same with the current police chief.

    This is one of those times when you can say it was better in the "old days". At least then more of these monsters had a bit of fear of the government and police. These days they don't and commit more brazen crimes by the day. Bring back the death penalty for these scum of society so if caught and convicted will feel the sudden stop at the end of a rope.
