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.

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