A local school principal, Stanley Mnyakama, took it upon himself to help find the family of a 16-year-old boy who died last week in Coligny in the North West province.
The alleged murder of the boy was apparently the reason there were violent protests in the area last week.

According to Mnyakama, the boy has been identified as Jonas Mahlomola Mosweu.The boy was also known as "Faki" to his peers.
