BREAKING: Another learner stabbed to death

- Silver Sibiya

A learner was stabbed to death with a pair of scissors about an hour ago at Thuto Tiro Comprehensive School in Sebokeng on the Gauteng's Vaal.

Spokesperson for Gauteng Department of Education, Steve Mabona, has confirmed that MEC Panyaza Lesufi is on his way to the scene.

Mabona sai the other learner died on the scene.

“As the department of education we wish to confirm that the MEC Panyaza Lesufi is rushing to Sebokeng in a school called Thuto Tiro. A learner stabbed another learner with a pair of scissors. Unfortunately the learner died on the scene,” Mabona said. 

He said the department would provide further details later in the day. 

This is yet another murder in the country's schools, many of them occurring in Gauteng. Last month, Rethabile Rapuleng, a Grade 6 leaner at Mogobeng Primary School in Katlehong was shot dead. 

The suspects are still at large and Lesufi called on police to arrest them within the next 72 hours.
