In certain sections of the Eastern Cape, school safety remains a worry. Recently, a 14-year-old student from a Mthatha school was reportedly abused within the school grounds by another parent who suspected the learner of stealing.
His mother claims he was injured and wants to drop out of school because he is terrified. The victim's mother says a complaint has been launched, but she is concerned that her kid may suffer additional abuse at school.
"A parent came to school, beat him up, and hauled him off the campus." He was accused of stealing a smartphone from his mom. He is wounded and unable to attend school. He also does not want to return to school. He claims that other students will perceive him as a thief. "This bothers me," the mother adds. Unathi Binqose, the Eastern Cape Safety Spokesperson, has denounced the parent's behavior.
"The claimed parent's behavior in this situation is utterly inappropriate." To say the least, it's revolting. Concerning school safety, this indicates that we must reconsider our security methods. "We need to rethink our safety procedures targeted at safeguarding students and staff members in schools, and we want to utilize this instance as a catalyst to assist us to do so," Binqose said.
