Teenager stabbed to death at Mondeor High School

A 16-year-old boy was found stabbed to death just outside the premises of Mondeor High School, south of Johannesburg on Wednesday.

EWN reporter Thando Kubheka says the boy's body has just been removed from the scene. Pathologists and police are processing the scene for clues.

Gauteng Education MEC has arrived at the school to establish exactly what happened and to brief the media.

EWN reporter Thando Kubheka says the victim's mother was at the scene.

His mother was also here crying profusely as you can imagine with the pain of losing a child.
