Police, as well as the KwaZulu-Natal department of education are looking for the young girl and boy involved in a savage beating that was filmed via cell phone.
The clip shows a boy, savagely beating a girl in a blue school uniform. He beats her to the floor and then proceeds to kick her in the back and head as she sits on the floor.
The girl stumbles to her feet, apparently dizzy from the beating and appears to be bleeding.
They appear to attend the same school.
The video is unverified, but has shaken social media. The school is believed to be in KZN, either in north of the province in Zululand or Inanda, north of Durban.
Muzi Mahlambi, spokesperson for the KZN education department, condemned the violence and vowed that strong action would be taken.
“We have sent the video to all 12 district managers to find out the name of this school. We had also set it to national in case it’s not in KZN. But I can risk speaking on behalf of other provinces: if this happened in KZN or Free State or anywhere else‚ from the MECs to the heads of department‚ it will be condemned and strong action will be taken,” he said.
Mahlambi says he was so shaken by the brutality in the footage that he couldn’t watch to the end.
“I promise you‚ once we find out the school‚ we will rush there. We will take harsh action against anyone involved. This kind of brutal and unacceptable assault cannot happen in our schools.”
Do you recognize the school? Do you have any information that could help the police?
