Mail & Guardian that the husband entered her class on Monday morning
after lying that he was fetching something from his wife.
“He then shot her but she managed to get away and tried running to the
staff-room but he followed her and shot her again outside where she
died,” said Zwane.
He said the husband then left for the couple’s house, which is not far from the school, where he also killed himself.
“The teachers and learners are extremely traumatised. Our team is at the
school offering counselling to the teachers and learners and they will
be there until everyone has come down,” he said.
Zwane said the department would be working hand in hand with the police
to try and ascertain the circumstances that had led to the shooting.
