The driver reaches his hand out to the pupil in a bid to stop him as he comes closer. The youngster then slaps the man.
He manages to stop the bus as the pupil gets on top of him‚ pinning him down to his seat while punching him several times in his upper body.
Other learners are heard screaming as the man is beaten.
It was not clear how the altercation ended. The 29-second clip only shows one part of the assault‚ in which the 19-year-old pupil is seen hitting the bus driver.
The other pupil is 15 years old.
Bhembe said both learners have been charged with assault. “The matter was reported to the police and a case of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm was registered‚ with the duo being arrested as a result‚” he said.
The teenagers appeared in the Leslie Periodical Court on Friday September 14. The 15-year-old was released into his parents’ custody and the other was released on warning.
