Johannesburg - The murder trial of six teenagers accused of killing three children,  was postponed until 23 January by the Mookgopong Magistrate's Court in Limpopo on Thursday, said police.

Police spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said the court was still awaiting a psychologist's report.

The teenagers, aged between 12 and 14, were implicated in the murders of brothers Bafana Kekana, nine, Hosea Richard Kekana, 10, and their cousin Johanna Kekana, 12, in August 2012.

The three, who lived at a Montadi Youth Care Centre, were found stoned to death.

Their hands and feet had been bound with shoelaces.

Johanna had been raped before being killed.

    Aged between 12 and fourteen years - and already standing trial for rape and murder. They can have sex at 12 like adults but when the commit serious crimes they are children? When will the punishment fit the crime? People have become inhumane - they dont care the pain and suffering they inflict on their fellow man. And what has happened to the child? What are children becoming?
