Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

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.

One of the houses that needs to be re­fur­bished as its door can­not be locked.
