Cape Town - A Cape Town youth will appear in court for allegedly killing a fellow pupil who refused to hand over his lunch, the Daily Voice reported on Friday.

Aphelele Nogqala, 14, was stabbed in the neck at the entrance to Isilimela Comprehensive School in Langa on Tuesday.

His mother Nomthetho, 49, said her son, who was in Grade 9, had been complaining about bullies in his school.

"I don't know who stabbed him or why, but I keep thinking about the day he told me that during lunch there would be other learners who tried to take their food and he was one of the people who refused to give it up."

She called on the education department to station metro police officers at more schools.

Police spokesperson Captain Frederick van Wyk told the newspaper a 15-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the murder and would appear in court soon.
