According to the Regional Director of Education (North East) Labani Mokgosi, the Standard 2 pupil found behind his classroom and playfully started pricking his mates with it.

“Most of the pupils who were jabbed with the syringe by the Standard 2 boy are also doing Standard 2. Two of them are age 6.  After the boy stabbed them, the pupils were rushed to Area W clinic for medical attention.  They were attended by medical personnel who administered doses of medication that prevent diseases like HIV(/AIDS) passed from one person to another through bodily fluids.  The pupils are now okay and are attending their classes as usual,” Mokgosi said.
