CAPE TOWN - A memorial service will be held today for slain 10-year-old, Chelsea Godlo, in Gugulethu.

The child's body was found under a bed in her grandfather's house last week.

Three people have since been charged with her murder.

Locals protested outside the court on Friday, calling for bail to be denied.

Family spokesperson Hubert Peters says residents are still very angry.

"They masterminded this killing. It came out in court they intended to kill the mother too for inheritance."

The memorial is set to start at 5pm.

At the same time in Johannesburg, government, police and communities reacted with anger during the funeral services of two three-year-old boys at the weekend.

Luke Tibbetts, who was shot in the head as he sat on his mother's lap in a car in Westbury, was laid to rest on Saturday.

Another young boy, Curburne van Wyk, whose partially burnt body was found in Reiger Park last week after he was kidnapped, was also buried.
