JOHANNESBURG - It has now been a week since a KwaZulu-Natal family was wiped out in Inanda and the police had not by Thursday afternoon managed to make any arrests.

Provincial police suspect the multiple murders of tuck shop owner Nobuhle Lehana and her five children were linked to domestic violence.

Their corpses, which had been stabbed numerous times, were found last week and a 14-month-old baby was the only survivor in the attack.

Police said the infant was left physically unharmed.

A man, who was taken in for questioning at the weekend, has since been released from custody.

KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Vincent Mdunge said: "The motive is still unclear at this stage. However, we strongly believe it could have been domestic violence related."
