JOHANNESBURG - A teenage girl accused of stabbing 15-year-old Keamogetswe Sefularo to death is due to return to court on Tuesday.

Sefularo was ambushed outside her school on the West Rand, in what her family has termed a satanic ritual.

The 15-year-old girl who was arrested for the murder is being assessed by a social worker and is due to return to the Randfontein Magistrate's Court.

She has been kept in a place of safety and it is not clear whether her bail application will get underway during her court appearance on Tuesday. After the stabbing, the 15-year-old was rushed to hospital, where she managed to identify at least one of her attackers before dying.

Information on her history and home life, which is all contained in the social worker's report, will be what the magistrate uses to make any decisions today.

The court session will be closed to the public.


Sefularo, the victim of the stabbing incident, was buried over the weekend after a memorial service was held for her at the Lukhanyo High School last week.

Ten pupils from school have been suspended for what the Gauteng Education Department has called "harmful religious practices".
