Pretoria - A teenager was stabbed to death by a good friend of his at school, apparently after they got into a fight over a pencil.

Donald Molefe, 16, died on the scene after he was stabbed twice in the chest and once in the left arm, back and side, reported Beeld.

The incident happened at Berea Park High School in the Pretoria CBD.

Principal Izak Theron said the incident happened during the second break.

“I can’t believe it happened. The children are searched at the gate every morning when they arrive at school,” he said.

The stabbed boy’s mother burst into tears when she was informed of his death.

A relative said they were shocked because the boy’s attacker was a close friend of Donald’s.

“They often went to each other’s houses.”

Theron said another boy was stabbed in the hand when he tried to stop the fight.

The other children would receive counselling on Thursday.
