North West Premier Thandi Modise has expressed shock at the death of four children, aged between two and nine.
The Mmupele children died of hunger and dehydration, in a sad irony at a place named Verdwaal near Lichtenburg.
It is reported that they got lost in search of food.
The Gift of the Givers aid organisation delivered food parcels to the rest of the family yesterday.
Modise says a case of child neglect is being investigated.
