Pupil bites off girl’s lips during fight

One of the learners at Tshilala Secondary School lost both lips during an argument that turned violent.

LIMPOPO – An argument over a tin of shoe polish left Nyawasedza Lusunzi (13) without both lips after they were bitten off by a fellow girl classmate.

Despite the effort by the school principal Khamusi Siobo to rush the victim to Tshilidzini Hospital, doctors were unable to repair the damage caused to Lusunzi’s mouth.

She was transferred to another hospital for doctors to determine the way forward.

Both girls are residents of Dumasi village near Thohoyandou. A teacher at the school who witnessed the incident said that the ordeal has affected learners and teachers alike: “We are now even afraid of going to the classrooms to teach the learners after the cruel some incident which we have witnessed. It will take months for us to forget about the whole ordeal”.

A well-known social worker in the Vhembe area Peggy Mulaudzi said the school including the teachers and learners would need professional counselling.

After witnessing incidents such as this one, learners must be provided with special counselling as this ordeal might stay in their minds for the rest of their lives, said Mulaudzi.

Lusunzi is set to remain in the hospital for a couple of days.

The Provincial Spokesperson for Education, Dr Naledzani Rasila said the culprit would face disciplinary action by the school and the victim’s parents can open a criminal case against her.
