What led to the deaths of three Gqeberha children, who died after eating noodles, is still a mystery. But the family said the noodles had not expired.

Motherwell police have opened an inquest docket after 11-year-old Sinothando Ngwendu, 7-year-old Olwam Ngwendu and 4-month-old Athenkosi Ngwendu died while being transported to healthcare facilities on Sunday.

According to Eastern Cape police spokesperson Colonel Priscilla Naidu, the three children had accompanied their grandparents on a visit to relatives in New Brighton on Saturday.

They slept over, and on Sunday the 11-year-old girl went to a shop to buy a packet of noodles, which she cooked and shared with her cousins.
