The bodies of two school girls who drowned while on an educational tour in the Free State have been found.
The girls drowned in Sterkfontein dam on Friday.
Police spokesperson Najang Mofupa says Malefu Mahlangu, 13, and Seipati Mokoena, 14 were on an educational tour to the dam with their school, Mafube Primary.
Mofupa says Mokoena's body was recovered on the same day by local municipal divers. Mahlangu's body was recovered by police divers on Saturday, as it was too dark to begin the search by the time the principal reported her missing.
