The Police in Limpopo condemn bullying and violence at schools

The SAPS Provincial Commissioner Lt Gen Nneke Ledwaba has condemned any form of bullying and violence in and around the learning environment in the strongest possible terms.

This condemnation emanates from the incident where a 21- year-old learner was severely stabbed by another during school hours at the school premises of a High School in Tzaneen. The incident happened on Monday 2018-02-12 at 12h00.

Police in Letsitele outside Tzaneen have since launched a manhunt for a 21-year- old suspect who is a leaner in one of the High Schools in the area who fled after the incident.

It is alleged that the suspect had a fight with the victim. During the fight, the suspect stabbed the victim with a sharp instrument before he fled the scene.

The victim was immediately conveyed to hospital in a critical condition for medical treatment where he is still recuperating.

The cause of this fight is still unknown but the police investigations will tell as they are still unfolding.

The suspects is still on the run and there is no arrest.

Anyone with information about this suspect, may contact Colonel Cecil Machimane at 072 532 1725 or Crime Stop on 08600 10111 or Crime Line sms 32211 or the nearest Police Station.

Members of the Community especially parents, educators and the school Governing Bodies, are advised and encouraged to ensure that children are not armed with any type of weapon while going to school and while they are within the school premises, to prevent this type of incidents to happen.
