Bloemfontein – A lovers’ quarrel was allegedly behind a 21-year-old Grade 12 pupil stabbing his girlfriend 14 times in their school in QwaQwa, Free State.  

Grade 10 pupil Mooaho Mosala, 18, said when she arrived at Moteka Secondary School in Harankopane village on Monday morning, her boyfriend confronted her about her whereabouts that weekend.  

“When I told him where I was, he got angry and jealous and said he wanted to kill me. While we were arguing he took out his knife, which he carries with him all the time and stabbed me,” she told News24 on Thursday.    

“I was scared for my life, but deep down I knew he was going to stab me. He usually brings his knife to school and he never gets caught,” she said.

Mosala said she was stabbed in the upper part of her chest, legs and thighs, but managed to flee from him.    

Teachers called police. Mosala was taken to hospital but had since been discharged.

The alleged attacker, Molapo Molapo, appeared briefly in the Phuthaditjhaba Magistrate’s Court on a charge of attempted murder on Wednesday.  

His case was postponed to March 2 for a bail application. He would remain in custody until then. 

The provincial education department said it was shocked by the incident.  

“The school is a safe place of learning and teaching and no form of violence against teachers or learners will be allowed within the premises,” spokesperson Howard Ndaba said.   

The department had offered counselling to pupils who saw the stabbing.
