The Education Department of Gauteng said that it has reportedly requested the local police to monitor the area which surrounds the Forest High School across Turffontein in Johannesburg. Gauteng’s Education Department has become very cautious to protect the students of the region after the death of a pupil. On Monday, a student of 16 years of age was stabbed to death by his classmates when they were not in the school.

Steve Mabona, the spokesperson of the Education Department, said that the school examination has reportedly been suspended after the incident took place. Mabona also said that since Monday, they are satisfied that the pupil was killed from the individuals who plotted revenge on him.

According to Mabona, they had to take the assistance of the police to save the lives of students in the area where the incident took place. And to overcome this tragedy, prioritizing the area will yield better results in the future. Furthermore, Mabona also said that the department is not going to tolerate the shortcomings such as this. It is inhuman for the youngins to take laws into their hands. Formal complaints should be brought forward.

Moreover, the school has also been shut down right after the fatal death of a student. Mabona said that it is highly unclear when the examinations are going to be resumed. There is a highly likely chance that the examinations might be pushed to the following week on Monday.

The Education Department said that they would continue the counseling process at school because they are monitoring the solution very closely. On the other hand, most of the learners of the school has not been to school since the incident. The Education Department said that if there will be a complaint then it the school authority along with police, will investigate it. There is a dire need to make these complaints official.e
