29 October 2010
A 14-year-old boy will be appearing in the Willowmore Magistrate's Court today on a charge of murder.
The boy allegedly stabbed to death a 17-year-old while fighting over a rugby tackle, on a playground at Willowmore Secondary School yesterday.
Captain Ernest Sigobe said “the boy was part of a group playing an informal game of rugby at the school when he allegedly tackled a 14-year-old boy too hard. This sparked a fight between them”.
It is alleged that 14-year-old boy left the grounds and returned with a bread knife and stabbed the 17-year-old.
The 17-year-old pupil died on the way to hospital.
