Two men arrested in connection with the murder of seven family members in Vlakfontein last week will appear at the Lenasia Magistrates Court today, November 5.
The pair were arrested at the weekend. A 27-year old man was arrested at the border between Mpumalanga and Limpopo and a 61-year old man in Dobsonville, Soweto.
The bodies of four children and three women from the same family were discovered buried under a heap of sand inside their home a week ago.
The motive for the killings is still unclear.
Gauteng Community Safety MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane she says she’s glad police have made some progress in the case.
“The community of Vlakfontein were exemplary in assisting police in this particular case.”
