A three-year-old boy is the latest child to die in South Africa after drowning in a pit latrine.

Omari Monono died in the outside toilet at his aunt’s house in Limpopo province, the same region where five-year-old Michael Komape drowned in a school toilet in 2014.

“I’m hurting. I cannot eat or sleep,” Omari’s mother, Kwena Monono, is quoted by IOL news site as saying.

“Every time I see something my son loved, my heart breaks and I just cry.”

She says her son “was pulled out of the toilet head-first at about 16:00 (14:00GMT) on Wednesday”, having gone missing two hours earlier.

Police say the boy’s aunt called for help when her own search failed.

“His aunt took off his clothes and left him to relieve himself outside the toilet as usual. She was busy with her house chores when she noticed she had not seen the toddler for some time,” police spokesperson Constable Maphure Manamela said.
