Boy, 15, arrested for stabbing fellow pupil

A 15-year-old boy has been arrested for the killing of a 17-year-old boy at Mogapeng village near Tzaneen, Limpopo police said on Monday.

The boy allegedly produced a sharp instrument and stabbed his fellow pupil, Ramothetsa Mangena, in the chest while they were on their way from school.

“The deceased was taken to Dr CN Phatudi hospital for medical treatment but unfortunately, he was certified dead on arrival,” said Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.

The younger boy apparently stabbed him without saying anything and then ran away.

Mgoepe said the motive behind this killing is still unknown.

The boy will appear in the Naphuno Magistrate Court soon.
