Khayelitsha learners stabbed in school gang wars

Three learners were stabbed and two severely injured at Bulumko High School in Khayelitsha following a gang-related fight on Thursday.

Tensions have been ongoing in the area as the children of two rival gangs within the community attend the same school.

It's reported that community members instigated the fight on school premises and threatened to burn down the school during a local meeting.

The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) says it's doing its best to stabilise the extremely volatile situation in collaboration with other authorities.

The City's Law Enforcement Director Robbie Robberts explains that Metro police and police have attended to issues of violence overnight and will continue to monitor the school.

Last month, parents forced the closure of Bulumko High School following a series of gang fights on the premises and a stabbing outside the gate.
