JOHANNESBURG – Police have found a body of a boy in Lenasia and they believe it may be that of a nine-year-old who went missing earlier this week.
It's understood Keketso Mahlakwana was playing with his friends outside his school on Tuesday when he was apparently taken by people in a white minibus taxi.
Police then launched an intensive search for him.
The body was found on Friday morning in a field opposite the Lenz Public Secondary School.
