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 organizations 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.
