“The DBE has condemned this violence in the strongest terms possible and such will not be tolerated within the school environment and should not be tolerated in our society at large,” said spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga.

The education department in the province is currently conducting an investigation to locate the school where this incident happened.

“The department will ensure that the strongest action possible is taken against the offending learner.”

She said they view gender-based violence in a very serious light. “We expect the police to ensure that the perpetrator is brought to justice as a matter of urgency.”

“As soon as we find the victim of the violence we will arrange a medical examination and provide any other support that will be necessary.

We want our learners to refrain from any acts of violence and misconduct in and outside the school environment. This type of action is a criminal offense and will need to be dealt with harshly.”
