In a video circulated on social media, one pupil is seen dragging and pushing another.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi has met with the school management at Monument High School in Krugersdorp after a video of a bullying incident was circulated on social media.

In the video, one pupil is seen dragging and pushing another shouting: "Jy wil mos rook".

Lesufi says he has met with the victim's family and that a disciplinary process will get underway.

Unfortunately the parent of the alleged perpetrator was not around the province, we could not meet with them.

Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng Education MEC

We have agreed to establish a disciplinary committee immediately so that they can hear the matter.

Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng Education MEC

Learners that were witnessing the event laughing, doing nothing, and learners that were involved in the altercation, we are giving them almost 48 hours for them to respond on why we should not suspend them immediately.

Panyaza Lesufi, Gauteng Education MEC

Lesufi says the school breached serious protocol by not reporting the assault.

We have established a team to investigate who didn't report and on the basis of that report, we will take decisive steps.
