A 3-year-old boy who was reported missing on August 14 has been found dead in the back seat of an old car at Madelakufa informal settlement, Tembisa.
Before disappearing, Terminator Miyelani Khoza was staying with his mother, 35-year-old Nwabisa Nkazana, at Madelakufa.
“His lifeless body was found in an old car at the same informal settlement on September, 13,” police spokesperson Constable Patricia Mgijima declared. “The owner of the car was planning to sell it and while taking photographs, he discovered the body of the victim in the backseat.”
The body was reportedly decomposed. It was later sent for a postmortem exam to identify the cause of death.
Last Friday, the child’s mother and her friend, 28-year-old Thandazile Shushu, were arrested and charged with murder.
Yesterday, both appeared in the Tembisa Magistrates’ Court. Their bail application is scheduled for October 17.
