The eight-year-old girl went missing two weeks ago after she was last seen walking to a tuck shop near her home.

Moyhdian Pangarker, 54, was arrested in the Eastern Cape and briefly appeared on a kidnapping charge in the Cradock Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday before being transported back to Cape Town.

He pointed out her body to police on Wednesday.

The Parow community had gathered outside the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on Friday where Pangaker appeared in connection with the child’s murder.
