Students on their break at Eldorado Park Secondary were taunted by a shirtless man on Thursday, Westside Eldos reports.

‘I’ll wait for you after school and chop off your heads with my panga.’

The man hurled abuse at the students while they were enjoying their break. This brazen attack occurred during school hours while students were on the school premises.

The school is surrounded by palisade fencing, and the aggressor hurled rocks at the students who scattered in all directions to avoid being hit.

‘Panga’

This comes after the alarmingly increasing attacks on students, who said they faced constant harassment from unemployed men within the community, who robbed and attacked them after school.

The man shouted obscenities at the students and threatened them with physical harm.

He was heard saying: “I’ll wait for you after school and chop off your heads with my panga.”

Many students fear being robbed or attacked by these elements within the community, and they now exit the school in groups, as lone students are more likely to be attacked.

When he passed by again, the residents confronted the attacker, and he fled towards an unknown destination along the Main Road.

The reason for the attack remains unclear, but students speculate that it was fueled by drug addiction.
