A 9 year old boy has been found dead after he was allegedly murdered by his mother’s boyfriend.
Police said Katlego Lesenya went missing on Saturday.
Police spokesperson Colonel Ronel Otto said the suspect had pointed out the area where he allegedly dumped the boy’s body.
He threw the body from a bridge into a shallow river on the Morken road between Mahweleng and Lephalale in the tinmines policing area. The search and rescue team retrieved the body this afternoon.
The police said it is alleged that Lesenya’s mother and her boyfriend had an argument the previous day and that their relationship had come to an end.
The boy was last seen in the company of the boyfriend the day he went missing.
