POLOKWANE – The six-year-old was a learner at Dorothy Langa Primary School in Zone Two, Sesehgo.

Police spokesperson Lt Col Moatshe Ngoepe says the learner requested to go to the bathroom and when he failed to return back to class, another learner was sent to look for him.

His body was found in the school bathroom.

“The deceased was transported to the local clinic where he was confirmed dead on arrival,” Ngoepe said.

The motive and circumstances behind this incident is unknown at this stage, but police say their investigation as well as the autopsy, will tell.

Ngoepe says Limpopo SAPS have condemned this as an act of child neglect and poor child safety measures.

“Communities, including educators, are advised to put child safety first on the basis that their movement and whereabouts must be monitored at all times to prevent these types of incidents from happening,” he concluded.
