The whole week has been traumatic after a video was shared and trended all over the country whereby a grade 10 pupil was seen beating another pupil of the same grade countless times with other pupils cheering and supporting that the pupil should be beaten. A learner by the name of LUFUNO Mavhunga from Tshirenzheni in Nzhelele outside Thohoyandou in Limpopo province was bullied to suicide by her fellow schoolmates in Mbilwi Secondary School. She was confirmed dead on Tuesday after she took an overdose of tablets. This was after she was bullied and called names on social media platforms when the video was trending.
The 15 Years old Lufuno died in Siloam hospital after collapsing at home. It is said that it has been a long time being bullied and the matter was taken to the principal but he never took it serious. If he had intervened and took serious actions against the person who was beating Lufuno, the deceased could be still alive. The masses say that the school management has failed the girl because they did not take strict measures early when the problem was being reported.
