Karabo’s body found: Bloemfontein police investigating



Bloemspruit police say an inquest docket has been opened after the body of seven-year-old Karabo Schoonwyk was found yesterday.

The little boy was swept away after he fell into the Bloemspruit on Thursday last week while playing with friends.

Police spokesperson Joy Xaba says police divers found him at 15:30 in a section of river along the old Brandfort road.

Xaba says the boy’s parents are devastated.

She has urged the community to be especially vigilant during periods of heavy rainfall
