JUST IN - A teacher was allegedly attacked by two parents and a learner at school in Botshabelo Secondary School at Free State province.
It is alleged that the learner collapsed outside the teacher's classroom earlier on Thursday and the parents were called in to the school. The parents
and the learner confronted the teacher when he walked out of the class, calling him a demon, throwing death threats to the teacher.
The three then attacked the teacher and the school laptop fell down to the ground. A case of assault common with an additional charge of malicious damage to property was opened at Botshabelo police station.
The two adults aged 42 and the learner were arrested on Thursday, the 16 year old grade 11 learner was later released under the guardian’s supervision in terms of Child Justice Act.
It is still unclear why the parents and the learner attacked the teacher. It is rumourned that the reason of the attack could be that the teacher had said bad things regarding the collapsing of the learner. The arrested are all expected to appear in Botshabelo Magistrate’s Court on Friday.
