Johannesburg - Mourners are planning a private memorial service this week for three members of the Van Breda family who were killed with an axe at the upscale De Zalze Golf Estate in Stellenbosch.

A week ago, the bodies of Martin van Breda, his wife Teresa and their eldest son Rudi were found in their home.

Daughter Marli, 16, was hospitalised with an axe wound to the head, media reported.

Police would not discuss the investigation.

In an emergency telephone call, 20-year-old son Henri, who was lightly injured, said a man with an axe had attacked the family.

Henri appeared to chuckle at one point in the call.
