Gauteng Education MEC Matome Chiloane has been left deeply saddened by the devastating news of a grade 11 learner’s alleged rape and murder. The tragedy has struck Chipa-Tabane Secondary School in Refilwe, Cullinan, where the girl was a learner.

Reports suggest the victim departed her home around 6 pm on Sunday but disturbingly never returned, prompting her mother to report her missing to local authorities later that evening.

The search for the young girl led her family to a cousin’s residence the next day upon receiving a tip-off. It is believed she was last seen in this individual’s company. It was there, in a chilling discovery, that they stumbled upon the lifeless body of the learner in a room.

In a swift turn of events, a suspect subsequently turned himself in to the police force. He is due for a court appearance at the Bronkhorstspruit Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

“We have been informed that the learner was likely sexually assaulted and then killed by strangulation,” disclosed Steve Mabona, a spokesperson for the Gauteng Department of Education.

MEC Chiloane voiced the overwhelming grief felt by the education department: “We are deeply devastated by the passing of our dear learner, especially through such gruesome circumstances. We solemnly sympathise with her beloved family, extending our most sincere condolences to them and the school community at large.”
