JOHANNESBURG - Concerns are being raised over the Stellenbosch triple murder case, with no arrests over three months after the attack.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) told Eyewitness News police are still investigating the Van Breda family murder.

Teresa and Martin van Breda and their son, Rudi, were killed with an axe at their luxury home outside Stellenbosch at the end of January.

Their two other children, Marli and Henri, survived the attack.

Defence attorney William Booth says the police have not revealed any information, possibly due to evidence gathering.

"The police and the NPA should advise the public, who have a right to know, what is going on with a particular case and why there is a delay."

The NPA's Velekhaya Mgobhozi has reiterated it's impossible to reveal when arrests will be made as police are still investigating the case.

More than 130 pieces of evidence have already been gathered.

It's believed siblings Marli and Henri have not yet come face to face since the attack in which their parents and older brother were all killed.
