Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says the body of a Grade 8 learner who went missing in Brits in the North West has been found. The learner, from Parktown Boys High School, was participating in an Orientation Camp. Police Search and Rescue teams suspended the search late last night at the river where the boy went missing.
Lesufi says they have informed the family.
Earlier, Lesufi suspended all sporting activities at the Parktown Boys High and released the boys.
