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.
