Naboomspruit, Limpopo -

Police were still searching for those responsible for killing three children in Naboomspruit, Limpopo police said on Saturday.

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said no arrests had been made and investigations were continuing.

The bodies of nine-year-old Bafana Kekana, Hosea Richard Kekana, 10, and Johana Kekana, 12, were found in Naboomspruit last Saturday.

They had been stoned to death, and their hands and feet bound with shoelaces. They were last seen on August 15 during a march to demand more teachers at their school, Dikobo Primary.

Johana, the girl, was raped before being killed. The three lived at the Montadi Youth Care Centre. Bafana and Hosea were brothers.

They lived at the centre because their grandmother, who looked after them, was sometimes hospitalised.

A funeral service will be held on Saturday for the three children.

A provincial government official said the service would start at 7am at the Mookgopong sports ground in Naboomspruit.

Officials from the education, and health and social development departments were expected to be present. - Sapa
