The mother of a Grade 11 pupil (21) who was bullied by a fellow pupil from Mathole High School in Ulundi, northern KwaZulu-Natal, is still struggling to get over the trauma of what happened.

The woman, whose name cannot be revealed to protect the identity of the child, said after a video went viral on social media her daughter lost interest in her studies, which resulted in a poor academic performance.

The pupil failed Grade 11 last year as she could not focus on her studies.
