MEC Lesufi outlines conflicting reports surrounding death of Ennerdale pupil

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi says there are conflicting reports surrounding the death of a grade 11 pupil who was shot and killed outside the Fred Norman Secondary School in Ennerdale, allegedly by his father.

Police say the father took his son to an extra evening class on Tuesday night and waited for him inside his vehicle.

It is believed the pupil found his father asleep and knocked on the car door, which startled the man and he opened fire.

Lesufi joined Joanne Joseph on the Afternoon Drive after visiting the school on Wednesday morning.

There are some conflicting reports, the report compiled by the school indicated that there was an altercation between the father and the child and the security guard that observed this altercation indicated that the father during the altercation left a cellphone and when he came back he indicated that he shot the learner.

But we also got a police statement that indicated that it was an accidental shooting so we are just awaiting a court appearance and the police to assist us to get the appropriate story,
