South African Student Brutally Raped, Murdered While Returning From Extra Classes

Palesa Malatji, a 17-year-old South African student has been brutally raped and murdered while coming back from extra classes in Gauteng where her school is located.

MEC for Education in Gauteng Matome Chiloane is due to pay a visit to the school and family of now-deceased Palesa Malatji. 

She was a matric student at Ntsako Secondary School in Soshanguve, Tshwane. 

The visit is scheduled to hold on Monday, May 29, 2023.

The sad incident is said to have occurred on Thursday, May 25, 2023.

According to Gauteng Education spokesperson Steve Mabona, the student left school in the afternoon after attending additional lessons and walked back home.

She did not come home, and her family began looking for her at the school, but to no effect. 

Her corpse was, however, discovered sexually abused adjacent to Echibini Secondary School in Soshanguve on Friday, May 26, 2023.

Matome Chiloane, MEC for Education, expressed that they are profoundly saddened by the incidence of this heinous act on one of their students.

“We wish to extend our sincerest condolences to the family and school community. 

"We will be dispatching our Psycho-Social Support to the school and family. 

"We call upon the police to urgently arrest the perpetrators of this unspeakable crime,” he said.
