The family of Michael Komape has lost their claim for general and constitutional damages for the death of their son, who drowned in a pit latrine in 2014.
The Limpopo High Court in Polokwane dismissed the claims on Monday.
Judge Gerrit Muller ordered that two of Komape's siblings be paid R6 000 each for general medical expenses.
The 5-year-old drowned in a pit toilet at Mahlodumela Primary School outside Polokwane four years ago.
