A grade one learner has been stabbed to death in Makapanstad, North West, allegedly by a learner from another school
Basic education department spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga said in a statement on Wednesday afternoon that the “tragic incident” happened at the Dikeledi Makapan Primary School earlier that morning.
“A grade one learner was stabbed multiple times, allegedly by a grade 11 learner from another school, Mankala Technical High School, who had been hiding in the primary school’s toilet,” Mhlanga said.
“It is alleged that the suspect apparently slept in the toilet overnight without anyone knowing he was there. The deceased was one of the first to go to the toilet in the morning and the grade 11 learner allegedly repeatedly stabbed him. He was rushed to the local clinic where he was sadly certified dead.”
