The Gauteng Education Department confirmed on Monday that a pupil died after being stabbed at a school in the Vaal.

It’s understood the pupil was stabbed by a school mate with a pair of scissors at the Thuto-Tiro Comprehensive School in Sebokeng.

The  male pupil at the Thuto Tiro Comprehensive School in Sebokeng has just been fatally stabbed. The Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi confirmed the incident via Twitter. He said the department was currently on their way to the school just after 12pm.

“It is with sadness and shock to inform that a learner was this morning stabbed to death by another learner with scissors at Thuto-Tiro Comprehensive School in Zone 10, Sebokeng,” the department said in a tweet.

Details surrounding the stabbing are still unavailable and an update will be provided once details become available.

Last month, a grade 9 pupil stabbed and killed a grade 1o pupil after the pair got into a fight allegedly over a cellphone at Tokelo Secondary School in Evaton, east of Johannesburg.

The 17-year-old grade 10 pupil, who was stabbed, died on the scene, while the grade 9 pupil was arrested. Police are currently investigating a murder. Lesufi has expressed shock at the incident.
