Vryburg -

A Pampierstad woman was found guilty by the Vryburg Circuit Court on Tuesday of killing her five children.

North West High Court Judge Ronald Hendricks delivered the verdict after 35-year-old Venolia Siwa pleaded guilty.

She murdered her children in 2011 in Pampierstad, on the border between the Northern Cape and North West.

Siwa killed four of her children by stabbing them in the neck with a kitchen knife.

She drowned the fifth in a bath. - Sapa
