A decomposed body of a girl, believed to be that of missing 10-year-old Mashego Kgomo, was found in Soshanguve, Pretoria, police said on Saturday. The body was discovered in the veld near a railway station on Friday evening, said Gauteng police spokeswoman captain Julia Claassen. "The badly-decomposed unidentified body was found in a veld near the Soshanguve when police followed a report from the community," said Claassen.
