The city would help with the funerals of 10-year-old Siphamandla Madikane who was murdered in Ramaphosa, and 12-year-old Siyabonga Linda who drowned in a reservoir in Vosloorus.

The decision was taken to help their grieving families, spokesman Zweli Dlamini said in a statement.

“The least the municipality can do is to contribute towards and ensuring that both youngsters are given decent burials and ease the burden on their families,” Gungubele said in the statement.
