What was the video about?

The Witness - Wheels - - NEWS -

In a nearly three- minute clip, two Grade 11 pupils beat a Grade 9 girl at a board­ing school in Um­lazi.

In the video, the Grade 11 ring­leader can be heard say­ing, “You will an­swer me,” while she slaps the vic­tim.

The pupil tak­ing the video also asked oth­ers in the room to move out of her way be­cause they were block­ing her view.

The se­nior pupil then shoved the vic­tim on the floor and an­other pupil joined in to kick her.

The vic­tim, flat on her face while the pair con­tinue to kick her and toss her around on the ground, is then told to stand up.

The pupil then asked the vic­tim, “Do you still want to be my play child [ Do you want me to be your men­tor]? Why don’t you lis­ten to me?”

The vic­tim, with tears in her eyes and stream­ing down her face, re­sponds: “I do.”

The Wit­ness has not shared or re­posted the video as the vic­tim and sus­pects are all mi­nors.
