Johannesburg - The killing of two toddlers in Diepsloot Extension one north of Johannesburg, was shocking and heart-breaking, the ANC said on Tuesday.

"We believe that the killing of kids is senseless and immoral, it is an act of those who are insane and heartless," said ANC Gauteng spokesperson Dumisa Ntuli.

"We condemn the brutal killing of the two innocent children and we call upon the [SA Police Service] to act swiftly to apprehend the killer."

The ANC sent its condolences to the children's families and relatives, and urged parents and communities to be extra vigilant to avoid similar killings.

The girls, aged 2 and 3, were found dead in a toilet cubicle, by a community member on Tuesday morning.

Police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini said they were reported missing on Saturday after they went missing, by the children's parents.
