It is alleged that the little girls were sent by their 47-year-old mother to buy her some tobacco from the neighbouring tuck shop at the suspect’s place.

The matter was reported to the police on Tuesday evening after the girls returned home and the eldest informed their mother about their agonizing ordeal.

Jwaneng police station commander, Superintendent Thuso Basuti, confirmed to The Voice Online that they were still working on investigations and taking the girls for medical examinations.
