A father in Limpopo has been arrested for killing his four-year-old son and burying his body in a shallow grave in the backyard of their home in Limpopo.
The father, a Lesotho national, was arrested this morning at Ngwanamatlang village in Jane Furse Sekhukhune district.
The mother is reported to be staying in Gauteng and the father has just fetched him from the mother two weeks earlier.
In a video clip that has emerged, a man wearing a green T-shirt and blue trousers is seen surrounded by angry community members demanding the boy’s body.
The father is further seen digging the shallow grave with a spate several times before finding the body. The video further shows the man reaching the body in a mealie meal bag covered in a blanket.
One of the community members can be heard saying that the man confessed to killing his son and burying her in a shallow grave in the backyard.
“He said he didn’t know what got to him when killed his son,” he said.
Another can be heard saying that the body was blanched with boiling water.
