Queens High School in Johannesburg is facing an unspeakable tragedy as parents want justice following the death of a learner, Brian Ndlovu, in what is believed to be a bullying incident.
The tragedy aroused indignation, leaving the community in mourning and searching for answers regarding the death of a young life.
Brian Ndlovu was allegedly forced to drink rat poison, which resulted in his premature death, according to reports.
The incident has brought the issue of bullying at school to the forefront, as another mom reported that her son had also been bullied, and her pleas to the school to address the issue appear to have gone unaddressed.
“The toilet seems to be the biggest targeted area…We would like your urgent intervention in the matter before one of the learners gets hurt in the process” said a parent.
Members of the EFF were also present as the community expressed its outrage over the death of young Brian Ndlovu.
The sad incident has prompted worries about the frequency of bullying throughout educational institutions as the community seeks answers and justice.
Mildred Ndlovu, Brian’s mother, describes what happened after Brian got home from school before passing away later that day.
