Lichtenburg - Three men appeared in the Lichtenburg Magistrate's Court in the North West Province on Thursday in connection with the killing of a 34-year-old man at an initiation school.

Serai Mathe, 24, David Modirwa, 25, and 18-year-old Hendrew Maake were arrested on June 16 at the school in Kaalagte Farm, said Sergeant Kealeboga Molale.

"Their arrest came after the police were called to the scene by the other initiates after Matshidiso Tlharesengoe was beaten and kicked to death [allegedly] by the three," said Molale.

"Upon arrival at the scene police summoned the Emergency Medical Rescue Services [EMRS] who certified the man dead at the scene." 

The three were expected back in court on July 23 when they were expected to apply for bail. 

They remain behind bars.
