Action after pupil attacked


The department of education in KwaZulu-Natal has suspended two Mathole High School pupils after a video of one of them attacking the other went viral.

“The [department] has summarily suspended two pupils, pending the disciplina­ry hearing, who attacked a pupil shown in the gruesome video clip that is being circulated on social media,” it said in a statement yesterday.

In the video, which went viral on Monday, a female pupil can be seen on the ground while another female pupils rips her underwear. The attacking pupil then begins throwing a flurry of punches as the other one helplessly takes the beating and pupils watch.

The department said the school was directed to finalise the disciplina­ry processes within seven days.

The department’s legal services officials have also been directed to assist the victim to open a police case. – News24 Wire
