(Video) #JusticeForLufuno: 15-year-old school commits suicide after being bullied

Justice For Lufuno:

Lufuno Mavhungu Tshirenzheni from the Thulamela Municipality, Limpopo, allegedly overdosed on pills on Monday, April 12, Limpopo provincial police said.



In the video which went viral on social media on Tuesday, the grade 10 pupil from Mbilwi Secondary School in the Vhembe East education district is seen being confronted by two other girls.

One of them signals the other to move while she gets closer to her to slap her countless times. The victim grabs the pupil who is assaulting her in an attempt to block the blows.

The Department of Social Development’s Spokesperson, Witness Tiva, said the department has dispatched a team of social workers to Mbilwi Secondary School and to the family of the girl.

"Social workers are attending to the case after details of the incident went viral on social media. The video depicts a learner attacking her fellow learner, in full view of other learners. The MEC for Social Development, Nkakareng Rakgoale, has condemned the incident saying that bullying is one of the social ills that are experienced in many communities and it needs to be confronted head-on,” he explained.

Rakgoale said the team of social workers will provide psychosocial support to ensure that the affected parties cope with their loss.

"We are very disappointed to learn about this bullying incident that ended in tragedy. We want to see these young boys and girls support each other at school, because they are there to learn,” Tiva said.
