Thoriso Themane was killed in an apparent mob attack at the weekend.

Limpopo police say four people have been arrested in connection with the murder of a 28-year-old man in Polokwane.

A severely injured Thoriso Thema was found by a passer-by in Flora Park before he was rushed to a hospital on Sunday.

A group of teens have been implicated in the crime.

Limpopo Police Spokesperson, Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe says one person has been taken in for questioning while four others have been arrested.

The police in Polokwane are investigating a case of murder following the attack which is believed to be mob related. The man was taken to a local hospital and later certified dead.

Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, Spokesperson - Limpopo Police

We have taken one person for questioning. As I am speaking now, we have already arrested four suspects which are positively linked to the killing and then we hope that more arrests will follow.

Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, Spokesperson - Limpopo Police

Yes, some of them are minors but allow us to finalise the process, as soon as they appear in court, we will be in a position to clarify each and every point.

Kgetjepe says the motive behind the killing has not been established.

Meanwhile, MEC for Education in Limpopo Ishmael Kgetjepe has confirmed that 14 pupils from various schools in Polokwane have been implicated.

We are exchanging information with the police in terms of what we get from a school level. There are about 14 members from five schools in Polokwane that are involved.
