The Police in Mecklenburg have opened an Inquest after
three children drowned in an abandoned mine shaft.The three boys are aged between 7 and 9.Police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said the
parents became suspicious when, at about 17h00, the children had not returned
home and were nowhere to be found.They searched the area and proceeded to the illegal mine
shaft which was filled with water due to the recent rains that fell in the
area. “On arrival, they were met by the sight of their
children’s clothes next to the dam and started anticipating that the worst
might have happened,” said Mojapelo The matter was reported to the local police and members
from the Provincial Search and Rescue and the K9 were then summoned to the
scene. The three bodies were later retrieved from the water.They were identified as the Ramabala siblings, Machaba
aged 8 and Itumeleng aged 9 as well as their friend Pabalelo Mokgethwa aged 7.The siblings were Grade 4 learners at Ramoko Primary
School and their friend was a Grade 2 learner at Mmalegaswi Primary School. All
deceased are from Phashaskraal village outside Burgersfort.Mojapelo said in a separate incident earlier this week,
an 11 year old boy’s lifeless body was recovered from Revhumbwe river in
Malamulela .The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police
Service in Limpopo, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba is concerned about the
loss of these young lives and has urged parents to look after their children
and strongly caution them against swimming in water filled holes. The General concluded by warning communities to desist
from engaging in illegal mining by digging up holes and leaving them unclosed
as this poses a hazardous environment to people, especially children.
