PRETORIA - Community members in Mamelodi, east of Pretoria, have come out in their numbers to honour Katlego Joja.

Hundreds of people gathered in the streets to demand justice for Joja.

Joja (10), who was diagnosed with autism, went missing last Thursday morning.

Her body was found on Sunday near a river in D2 Mamelodi West.

Joja&39;s family says it is deeply saddened by the slow response from police.

This was after officers told them a kidnapping case could only be opened 24 hours after the child went missing.
