Stabbing Knife 1 - Another learner stabbed in the Southern Cape

Another learner has been stabbed at the Indwe Secondary School at Mossel Bay in the Southern Cape.

The Education Department says the Grade 11 learner is in a stable condition after being stabbed by another learner in the lower back.

On Monday, a 15-year-old learner was stabbed after a group of boys entered the school with weapons.

Western Cape Education Ministry spokesperson, Jessica Shelver says,”The SAPS (South African Police Service)  have apprehended the perpetrator, a Grade 9 learner at the school.”

“District officials visited the school following the incident and indications are that the on-going fights at the school are as a result of gang factions and issues that stem from the community. A meeting is scheduled for Thursday with parents, teachers, community organisations and SAPS with the aim of joining forces to find a solution to the scourge of gangsterism that is plaguing the school and the community, ” Shelver adds.
