The mother of an injured 13-year-old pupil wants justice.
The 41-year-old from Skierlik in Mamelodi, Tshwane, said her son was hit on the head with the butt of a gun.
He was allegedly injured by a 15-year-old pupil from his school, Kutumela Molefi Primary in Mamelodi.
The incident happened on Thursday, 23 February, near the school premises.
The angry mum said her son was insulted for no reason and allegedly threatened with death.
“The pupil tried to pull the trigger but luckily the carriage fell down. After that he used the back of the firearm to hit my son on the head,” she said.
“My son was badly injured and so much blood was flowing from his head, even his shirt was full of blood,” she said.
The woman said he was treated at Stanza Bopape Clinic in Mamelodi East on the same day.
She said he was still in pain.
“My son is a good person and didn’t deserve such.”
She said some people said the pupil was carrying a toy gun, which she said was not true.
“We want the police to come with dogs to search for dangerous weapons at the school,” she said.
A woman said she saw the pupil walking out of the school yard, allegedly carrying a firearm on his right hand.
“I heard pupils screaming outside the school gate saying, ‘a gun, a gun’, and another grade 7 learner came bleeding from his head and his shirt was full of blood,” she said.
It has still not been established where the pupil got the gun.
Gauteng police spokeswoman Colonel Dimakatso Sello said: “As per the case number you provided, that is an assault GBH case and the 15-year-old suspect is expected to appear before court on 27 February 2023.”
