Johannesburg - The KwaZulu-Natal member of the executive council (MEC) for transport, community safety and liaison, Mxolisi Kaunda on Wednesday lauded the swift action taken by the police after the arrest of a Pinetown father who allegedly killed four children.
On Tuesday, the bodies of the children, aged four, six and 10, were found hanging in their home in Wyebank. The 16-year-old girl's body was found hanging in a tree in New Germany, west of Durban.
