THE four pupils who were injured in Saturday’s bus accident were in a stable condition yesterday.

The bus was transporting Albini High School pupils to uShaka Marine World when it overturned at Shongweni, killing two pupils and injuring 70 others. The school’s principal, Musawenkosi Malinga, said when a delegation from his school had visited three pupils at Hillcrest Private and R.K. Khan hospitals on Sunday, they were not aware that there was a fourth pupil at King Edward VIII hospital.

“We didn’t know that two of our pupils were admitted at King Edward. One of them had since been discharged but Zinhle Mkhize, who is in Grade 10, is still at the hospital. We were informed by her mother yesterday that she was still in hospital,” said Malinga.
