Johannesburg - Two KwaZulu-Natal teenagers were arrested for trying to register at the Mtwemtweni High School near Amanzimtoti with fraudulent report cards, provincial police said.

The two, aged 15 and 16, were arrested after they tried to register for Grade 9, Captain Thulani Zwane said.

"They claimed that the reports were from the Khayelihle High School that they had previously attended in uMbumbulu.

Authorities at Khayelihle High School refuted the claims that the school reports had been issued by them."

Both teenagers would appear in the Nsimbini Magistrate's Court on Thursday on charges of fraud.

    Haibo! These two have potential careers in the new South Africa already. They are clearly showing signs of having all the credentials to fit in as MEC's somewhere in Zuma's cabinet.

    They obviously think that by skipping a few grades they are very clever only to discover how dumb they really are! Shame.....

    Ironicly, it seems that if you are in school and don't want to learn, your marks get marked up in order to make it seem as though you are smarter than you are. Then you get 2 pupils, who want to go to school badly enough to fake it, and they get arrested.
