Limpopo police are searching for more suspects following the brutal murder of 27-year-old Thoriso Themane.

Themane was at a park in Flora Park suburb when he was beaten up by a group of youngsters.

Five teenagers from different schools in the Polokwane CBD in Limpopo have been arrested in connection with the murder and will appear in court soon.

The gang took a video of him being beaten and posted it on social media. Police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe says they cannot rule out the possibility that the violence might have been influenced by gansterism.
