Lesufi visits slain Laticia Jansen's family, demands answers from school

Following the rape and murder of 15-year-old Laticia Jansen, Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi visited Jansen's family and also met with Graceland Education Centre's management on Monday.

Jansen’s body was found in the bushes in Elsburg last week and it appears that she had been raped, stabbed and set alight after being left behind by scholar transport.

Clement Manyathela on the Midday Report chats to EWN reporter Bonga Dlulane who is following the story.

Lesufi says what has happened is something that could have been prevented. He was saying he was very distressed that the school didn't know that Jansen was missing for three days because he was informed on Friday and she had been missing since Wednesday.

Panyaza has given the school a 2pm deadline to give reasons as exactly what happened and if he is not satisfied heads will roll, Dlulane reports.

The angry MEC says things shouldn't have happened this way.

The community says this area where Laticia’s body was found is hazards and dangerous for pupils to walk too and from school.
