The Gauteng community safety department and the South African Police Service are planning to conduct a raid at a Soshanguve school, north of Pretoria, where two pupils were stabbed this week.

The pupil who allegedly attacked two of his schoolmates, killing one, is due to appear in court again today. The 17-year-old was apparently bullied by the teenagers and went home to fetch a knife. When he returned to the school he allegedly stabbed the two pupils.

“The bullying incident at Soshanguve Central Secondary [School] resulted in the fatal stabbing of one learner and another was injured in the process,” Thapelo Moiloa, the spokesperson for Gauteng community safety MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane, said today.

“A pupil aged 17 died and the other one, 16 years of age, was taken to hospital. [The pupil who stabbed the others] was arrested on Monday and appeared in court on Tuesday. The matter was remanded to today,” said Moiloa.

The pupil was in custody at a place for child offenders, Kusasa, in Cullinan. He would be moved to the Krugersdorp branch of the centre after today’s court appearance.

Nkosi-Malobane was expected to visit the families of the pupils.
