On Friday at 10am four teenagers held the Zwelihle High School Grade 8 and 9 classes at gunpoint.
One of the pupils, who did not want to be named for fear of victimisation, said the robbers demanded cash and cellphones from the pupils.
“We know these guys. They bully the schoolchildren all the time and steal their money and other valuables. They are known to attack pupils inside the school too.”
The pupil said that as the robbers brazenly made their way out of the school gate, the pupils decided to fight back.
“They confronted the robbers and asked them if their gun was working. They started running. This did not stop us. Everyone gave chase. We were all sick and tired of their bad habits.”
She said as the gang ran towards the Zamani informal settlement, pupils hurled stones at them and continued to chase them.
“Some of the pupils eventually caught them at the settlement. They started hitting them and pelting them with stones. More than 500 children were there.”
“These suspects were about 15 years old. They did not go to school. Someone alerted the police who arrived a few minutes later. But, by that time it was too late. Two of the suspects had died, a third is in a serious condition and the fourth guy ran away.”
