A Cape Town mother said officials have done little to help her 16-year-old son, who is allegedly being bullied at school.
The teenager attends a special needs school in Milnerton.
The concerned mother said her son often returns home from school with bruises on his face.
She suspects he is not willing to speak about it because he is afraid of reprisal attacks.
The teen apparently told his cousin that he had been targetted during break-time and in-between classes, when no teachers are around.
His mother lodged a complaint with the Department of Education, but had not received any response.
The department has since told Eyewitness News that it would investigate the matter further.
Meanwhile, in a separate incident, a Gauteng teenager committed suicide last week, apparently because he was being bullied.
