Johannesburg - A Limpopo father who allegedly slit the throats of his four children appeared in the Magatle Magistrates' court on Thursday, Limpopo police said.

The murder case against Lesiba Simon Kekana, 36, was postponed to October 6 after he told the court he was not ready to continue with the matter. He was not yet sure whether he wanted a lawyer.

The children's mother, Loraine Nkoana, told reporters on September 7 that Kekana forced the youngest son to phone her while it was happening.

Nkoana, 37, said she and her husband had a fight, but she was under the impression it had been resolved after an uncle stepped in to mediate.

She said she started getting abusive phone calls from him on Sunday while he was driving from Gauteng to Limpopo with their four sons, aged 13, 10, 6, and 4.

He called her and told her to say goodbye to them.
