The three youngest victims were the man’s biological children, while the 17-year-old was his stepchild.
He allegedly killed the children following an argument with their mother.
Save the Children SA’s Sibusiso Khasa says they welcome the police’s swift action in arresting the suspect.
“As Save the Children South Africa we are appalled and saddened by the reports of the killing of the children. We also welcome the arrest made by the police because it indicates that some action has taken place. We do acknowledge that the suspect is innocent until proven guilty but we hope that this arrest will lead to conviction,” adds Khasa.
