‘Bul­ly­ing death’ clar­ity

Sunday Times - - WEEK IN REVIEW -

Was a 13-year-old Grade 7 boy who died on Tues­day bul­lied to death at his East Rand school?

The re­sults of a post­mortem, due on Tues­day, will help po­lice to de­cide what charges to level against other pupils at No­orderlig Gekom­bi­neerde Skool in Benoni.

Gauteng com­mu­nity safety MEC Siza­kele Nkosi-Malobane said an­other Grade 7 boy had been sus­pended.

“What we want to find out is: why did it take so long for the school to act against those who were bul­ly­ing the chil­dren?”
