A 15-year-old pupil was murdered while walking home after school on Monday in Mooinooi, North West.

“Felies Sithembile, 15, was allegedly stabbed by another 15-year-old learner on Monday,” said police spokesperson Col Adéle Myburgh on Tuesday.

Sithembile was on his way home after school around 2pm when the suspect stabbed him with a knife on Segwaleane Road. The suspect is enrolled at another school.

“According to information available, the victim was then taken to a local clinic by a passerby, but he succumbed to his injuries,” said Myburgh.

The suspect fled but his parents handed him over to police on Tuesday around 8.30am.
