WHAT HAPPENED THE MURDER of a 16-year-old pupil in Krugersdorp by a masked fellow pupil using a Samurai sword gripped the country’s attention. Morné Harmse (18) allegedly wore a mask similar to that worn by singer Corey Taylor of the heavy metal band Slipknot and said before the attack he’d cause a bloodbath at the school. Other pupils and two workers were injured in his frenzied attack. THE CITIZEN wondered about the horror with which SA parents must have reacted when they heard about the murder of 16-year-old Jacques Pretorius. That must serve as a wake-up call to parents to improve their relationships with and observation of their children and not be part of the problem. The Star said the attack pointed to a growing problem of violence at SA’s schools that required urgent attention.
