Investigations are continuing into the murder of Laticia Jansen. Her body was discovered in Elsberg on the East Rand last week after she had been left behind by scholar transport.
Gauteng MEC for Education Panyaza has demanded a report from Graceland Education Centre as to why they didn't notice that Jansen was missing for three days.
Joanne Joseph speaks to community development worker Mmakwena Ramashu who details how Jansen's grandmother approached her for help after being returned by the police.
I was the first one to report to the MEC because the grandmother came to me saying the child is missing and she went to the police but there was no help she was getting and she went to the school but they were silent.— Mmakwena Ramashu, Community development worker
The grandmother says she asked the police to go with her and search around the field where the children pass and the police refused.— Mmakwena Ramashu, Community development worker
Ramashu explains in graphic detail how they found the body of Laticia at the field.
On Friday she woke up with the brothers and the stray dogs of the yard to search for the child and when they got to the field they found her books and later found her body.— Mmakwena Ramashu, Community development worker
We don't know whether it happened in the early hours or at night.— Mmakwena Ramashu, Community development worker
