A student from KwaZulu-Natal who had been expelled for wearing traditional clothing but was later let back after the education administration intervened has taken her own life.
The provincial education department expressed its sadness at the loss of the 15-year-old student from Nombika High in the iLembe area on Tuesday.
According to reports, the student's suspension was due to the traditional clothing that was required due to her ancestor's calling.
The deceased's dispute with the school about her traditional rituals was recently covered by the news. She returned to the school and resumed taking classes like everyone else once the department intervened.
The student wrote all of her June exams, according to the department.
"The department has not determined what caused her to decide to commit suicide. To determine the circumstances behind her sudden death, the iLembe district director has sent a team to her family, it stated.
