When Letty Ntumeleng of Ramokgonami last week heard her Form II son Nicholas rapping in strange tongues, and acting strange, she suspected something was terribly wrong.
This would be the beginning of confessions by the boy who claimed to have been initiated into a satanic cult by the school’s deputy head, along with several other students.
According to Nicholas’s mother, Letty Ntumelang, her son started acting strangely last weekend. He started drawing horrific pictures at home, after which he started rapping in gibberish. Ntumelang said that after witnessing her son’s shocking behaviour, she called a pastor to come and pray for the boy. “Nick acted so weird that I ended up calling the pastor to come and pray for him.

That is when the students revealed their evil doings and the person who initiated them. All fingers pointed at the deputy school head, and that did not go down well with the parents.
