Mabaso says that Khupe ordered him to rape the four children in front of him, suffocate them and then bury them in the backyard.

Mabaso says he's not a flight risk and can afford R5,000 bailout which will be paid by his parents.

The pair is facing multiple charges of premeditated murder, rape and theft.
