Lesufi: Grade 2 Learner Allegedly Found Raped And Murdered In Katlehong


A GRADE 2 girl learner from Sekgutlong Primary School in Katlehong on the East Rand, who went missing this past weekend, has been found dead.

The learner was allegedly raped and murdered, and was found in one of the neighbours’ backyard.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi said he was appalled by the death of the Grade 2 learner.

“She was allegedly raped and murdered, and was found in one of the neighbours’ backyards,” said Lesufi.

It is alleged that the learner had gone missing from her home on Sunday, October 11 October.

“We rebuke the horrifying acts of the perpetrators involved in the death of this learner, and we wish for the uncompromised safety of all our learners,” said MEC Lesufi.

The provincial education department said according to information from the local police, a suspect has been apprehended in connection with the girl’s death.

Lesufi said the department has sent a Psycho-Social Unit to the school to provide the necessary counselling to those who have been affected by the incident.

“It is with great sorrow to hear about the disheartening passing of one of our youngest learners at Sekgutlong Primary School,” said Lesufi.
