All resources have been deployed to stop the inferno burning in the Du Toitskloof Pass near Paarl, which has caused damage to houses and other property in the vicinity, the Cape Winelands District Municipality said on Friday.
Gauteng education MEC Panyaza Lesufi is expected to release the report at the University of the Witwatersrand on Thursday evening.
‘I wish a miracle could happen,’ Enock’s natural sciences teacher Mapula Modipa-Xaba said through tears. ‘I can’t believe he is gone, and gone in the way that he left.’
Patricia Peters will report to the district office from Wednesday, pending the finalisation of an investigation into Jansen’s horrific death.
In honour of Mpianzi, Parktown Boys’ High pupils formed the guard of honour on the path he would have walked on his final day at the school in 2024.
Lesufi added that he had urged all investigators to conclude their probes so that a report could be made public to the school community.
This was due to inconsistencies in ‘alleged facts’ surrounding the turn of events at the camp.
Seboko’s family believed that there may have been an element of bullying involved in his death after marks were found on his body.
The boy’s mother, who cannot be named to protect his identity, says he’s been stunned into silence, and that the sound of water traumatises him.
The EFF leader visited the family on Wednesday morning to convey condolences.
The statement contradicts the eye witness account of a grade 8 Parktown Boys learner who was present at the orientation camp.
‘I grabbed a pole and tried to pass it to Enock but I couldn’t reach him. The river swept him away,’ says the eyewitness.
Many key factors were overlooked leading up to the tragic drowning of the Grade 8 pupil, an occupational health and safety industry expert says.
