Police action months after girl assaulted at school

Police have finally taken action in the assault of a girl at school which was filmed and then shared on social media.

The girl was assaulted at the Siyathuthuka Secondary School in Inanda, KwaZulu-Natal, in November 2016.

Her father told News24 that he had gone to police on the day of the incident, but they refused to act.

“Police first told me there were no vans available to go take us to the perpetrator’s home. They then told me that it would be a waste of time to open a case against the boy because he would be set free in court,” he said.
