Boy stabbed at Manenberg school
A boy was stabbed by a group of men at the Silverstream Secondary School this morning.
CAPE TOWN - A boy was stabbed in the back this morning by a group of men at the Silverstream Secondary School in Manenberg in what is believed to be a gang-related incident.
The Western Cape Education Department's Bronagh Casey says it's not clear why the boy was on the premises as he's an ex-learner. His attackers are also not pupils at the school.
"The young man was deregistered from the school at the end of last year. The mother had collected transfer papers from the school in January. He should be in grade 9 at the moment. He is currently receiving treatment at a hospital for a stab wound to the back. He is stable."
