Five black minors stone friend to death

It is not yet certain whether five black minors from North West, who are accused of murder, will appear in court tomorrow.

This is according to police spokesperson Sabata Mokgwabone, and follows after the arrest of the minors along with two older suspects for allegedly killing a schoolboy at Kgakala township in Leeudoringstad.

Mokgwabone says the 17-year-old was apparently stoned to death yesterday.

He added that the minors are currently undergoing assessment by social workers, and that if they should appear tomorrow it will most likely be in camera.

Mokgwabone told OFM News that the motive of the incident is unknown at this stage, and the investigation continues.
