CAPE TOWN – Two men taken in for questioning in connection with the murder of a Manenberg girl have yet to be charged.

The 10-year-old’s family reported her missing after she failed to return home from school last Thursday.

Her body was eventually found on Friday.

Manenberg Safety Forum chairperson, Roegshanda Pascoe says: “How long is it going to take for police to really act and get the perpetrators, and what are the risks that children in Manenberg face daily with a murderer of that caliber walks free.”
