CAPE TOWN - Parliament's portfolio committee on basic education on Tuesday called for a report from the department on the brutal murders of three Limpopo pupils.
The bodies of the nine, 10 and 12-year-old siblings, who lived at a care centre, were found on Saturday.
They were stoned to death.
The committee on basic education addressed the murders on Tuesday, saying a motive needs to be uncovered.
The children were last seen during a march to demand more teachers at the Dikobo Primary School.
Their bodies were found with their hands and feet bound by shoelaces.
The 12-year-old girl had been raped.
Portfolio committee chairperson Hope Malgas asked for more details on the case and was told by a Member of Parliament from the area that one of the boys' eyes had been removed.
The committee wants a report back from the department as no arrests have been made.
A memorial service for the children will be held on Thursday.
