What was the video about?
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.
A video recently surfaced on social media showing a senior high school girl repeatedly hitting a junior pupil from Vukuzakhe Secondary School, Umlazi. This is a screengrab.
