School where school boy stabbed gets 100% pass
St Holy Ghost Primary, at KaShoba in Lubombo Region has defied all odds. the
Grade Seven pupils at the school were witnesses to the stabbing of one of their own a few months back as they prepared for examinations.
They watched a classmate die of stab wounds, while studying for their external examinations. Despite this gruesome tragedy, they were able to pass with flying colours. According to the results, the school had an enrolment of 32 pupils. There were two First Class passes with the rest getting Second Class passes. There were no failures. Melusi Bongiswa Gamedze (17) was allegedly stabbed by Thabiso Dlamini while he was in school on the first Monday of October. Dlamini (31) is said to have invaded the school wielding a weapon with which he stabbed him in the back as he fled. Dlamini is said to have suspected that the young boy was having an affair with his partner, and he said he had tried to resolve the matter on numerous occasion such as approaching the deceased’s family. He is alleged to have justified killing him due to the boy bolting each time he tried to talk to him, and hence decided to ‘pay’ him a visit at the school.
