JOHANNESBURG - A 15-year-old pupil from Refilwe Primary School in Winterveldt, north of Pretoria, will be relocated to another school after he was found guilty of raping a grade six pupil.

It is believed the teenager raped an 11-year-old boy in a school bathroom while another student kept people from entering.

The incident happened almost two weeks ago.

The Gauteng Department of Education on Thursday said a disciplinary inquiry was held and two boys were found guilty.

Spokesperson Charles Phahlane said police have been providing counselling support to the victim.

No criminal case was opened.
