Its alleged that the group of learners waited for the victim outside the school and attacked him with sharp objects and the scissors.
There seemed to be continued violence among the learners in Gauteng schools as this stabbing incident is one of many.
The department of education in the Gauteng province seemed to be unwilling to engage on the safety measures implemented at schools to deal with issues of gang violence among learners.
