Reburial for murdered kids

THE Modimolle municipality in Limpopo will tomorrow hold a joint funeral for three serial killing victims.

The remains of two of the children were discovered in shallow graves after serial killer David Rannditsheni pointed out the spots where he had buried them shortly after his arrest in May last year. DNA results were released this week to enable the families to bury them.

The remains of Nono Lefawana, who disappeared on January 10 2005 aged seven, and that of Johanna Motshabi, who disappeared on January 11 2006 aged only three, were discovered in the mountains near Phagameng location. The body of the third victim, Johanna Mabunda, who was 13 at the time, was discovered on July 25 2006.

Rannditsheni, 47, committed suicide in jail a week ago after being sentenced to 26 life terms.
