Killed and the body found on a field

 Gauteng police say the family of nine-year-old Keketso Mahlakwana, who went missing in Lenasia last week, will identify a body to see if it belongs to him.
The body was discovered on Friday in a field opposite the local public secondary school.
It’s understood the boy was playing with his friends outside his school when he was apparently taken by people in a white minibus taxi.
Authorities launched a widespread search.
Police spokesperson Kay Makhubele says: “They will be in government mortuary to check if the boy who was found in an open space at Lenasia is not one of their own.
“So far, we’re investigating a case of murder and we’re still asking anyone with information to contact the police.”
The boy's disappearance comes as 13-year-old Kitso Mothibe, who was missing for three weeks, was found alive at the weekend.
At the same time, the Gauteng African National Congress (ANC) says it’s gravely worried about the spike in violence against women and children and that the men arrested for attacking women must be prosecuted and jailed.
In the last few weeks, a pregnant woman was gang-raped in Johannesburg and other women have been attacked.
The Gauteng ANC’s provincial secretary Hope Papo says: “Sexism and patriarchy is a product of many years and we need to deal with that issue at that level.”
