It is believed the suspect, who is the children’s father, hung them one-by-one before fleeing the scene and hanging himself.


Limpopo police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe says police are investigating two counts of murder.


Ngoepe says it is alleged that the mother and father of the child had a domestic dispute last year before they separated.


"On Saturday the 22nd June 2019, the children went back to Mankweng to visit their father for the school holidays, and upon their arrival, the man allegedly called his wife, and they had a conflict telephonically.”


Ngoepe adds after the phone conversation, the 38-year-old turned against the children.


“(He) hanged them one by one in separate rooms before he fled the scene."
