Angie Motshekga

Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga described an incident in which a 17-year-old learner allegedly stabbed a North West province teacher to death, as an abhorrent travesty.

Twenty-four-year-old Gadimang Daniel Mokolobate was killed in front of learners who were writing an exam.

“It is heart-breaking to lose such a young teacher, who still had so much to offer and so much potential for greatness in such a pointless and tragic manner,” Motshekga said.

Police arrested the learner, who was allegedly reprimanded the day before by this teacher for a minor incident involving skipping the queue for the National School Nutrition Programme.
