IFP Shocked by Death of Learner in Gauteng

03 April 2014.

  

The Inkatha Freedom Party is horrified at the tragic passing of a learner who was allegedly beaten to death by one of his teachers.

  

IFP MP on Education, Mr AM Mpontshane said, ”No child, no matter the circumstances, deserves to be on the receiving end of any kind of abuse.

 

"This tragedy should never have occurred. A precious life has been extinguished by the alleged very hands of a teacher mandated to nurture, protect and educate learners.

 

“We applaud the SAPS for their swift work in arresting and charging the teacher and trust that our courts will ensure that justice is served. Should this teacher be found guilty, we would support the most severe criminal sanction being handed down against him.”

 

The Inkatha Freedom Party sends its heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Sizwe Kubheka.
