Kimberley – A group of Northern Cape high school boys have videoed themselves raping a pupil with a broomstick, according to reports.

City Press reported that the four-minute video shows a group of six boys in their underpants attack a child at the hostel of an agricultural high school in the Northern Cape.

The boy is seen bound by his hands and feet to a steel frame bed, while the group smear, what appears to be shaving cream, on him.

According to the report, before he is brutalised, his head and buttocks are shaved.

The boy is heard screaming and crying as his attackers and other boys in the room laugh and joke.

It is thought the incident was racially motivated because the attackers were white and the victim was black.

In the video a handful of black pupils can be seen watching the gruesome act take place.

Northern Cape education spokesperson Sydney Stander told the daily newspaper that the video was shot at the school’s hostel on Sunday.

The young victim is a new pupil at the school, who only enrolled this year.

His grandmother had informed the school of the attack on Wednesday, after he told her what happened.

The young boy is receiving trauma counselling.
