The bodies of three people swept away by floods in the North West have been found, the office of premier Thandi Modise said.

The body of a seven-year-old boy was recovered in Mogwase and two missing men were found in Marikana, Modise’s spokesman Lesiba Kgwele said in a statement on Friday.

The boy, a grade one pupil from Morongwa Primary School, was swept away on Thursday while returning from school with friends.
