JOHANNESBURG – A funeral service provider has offered to repatriate the body of a grade 1 pupil killed at his school back to Zimbabwe and pay for the funeral service.

The little boy was fatally stabbed by a grade 11 pupil at the Dikeledi Makapan Primary School in the North West last week.

Zororo Phumulani Funeral Services says if the family decides to bury the seven-year-old in Zimbabwe, they will help.

Company CEO Edwin Anderson says: "So, we were touched that a fellow Zimbabwean has to go through this experience, so we decided to come on board and try to assist the family."
