Mahikeng - The body of the 8-year-old girl, allegedly drowned by her mother on Monday, has been found, North West police said.

The girl's body was found by police divers, said Sergeant Kelebogile Moiloa in a statement.

"A 32-year-old woman was arrested this morning... [Monday] at about 09:00 for allegedly attempting to drown herself and her two daughters by throwing them inside a dam in Tontonyane Village in Mmabatho."

Police believe the woman went to the dam, threw the 8-year-old girl in between 08:00 and 09:00, and then jumped into the dam with her 4-year-old daughter.

"The police were called to the scene and managed to rescue the woman and her 4-year-old child," said Moiloa.

Police were investigating a case of murder and attempted murder.

      Race has nothing to do with it! Dont be stupid.. White people do the same. A guy I was in class with was murdered (along with the rest of his family) by his own father. And they were white. It happens in all walks of life.

      Women own children like cellphones, its better to kill them than taking them to their paternal family, democracy at its worst form.

    This kind of thing happens because of bad management by governments,law isnt applied in this country therefore the lawless have nothing to fear.

    Shoooooooooooo, what happened to seeking help mama if your problems are too much? Look now you are faced with murder and a attempted murder, more then what you were faced with woman.

    We have been in a very bad place as well a while back, but to do that to my two kids? No, I don't think so. Sad that she felt she had nowhere and no one. MAybe you can blame the grant system, "have more kids, we will pay", or alcohol, or drugs or crime, choose one of a million reasons, fact remains, she must have been in a very bad place, sane or not.
