Another #ChildTragedy hits Free State

An eight-year-old learner at the Tsholetseng Primary School in Bloemfontein has been confirmed dead while six other learners are admitted to hospital.

This, after an alleged food poising at the school. The Free State Department of Education’s Spokesperson, Howard Ndaba, says the cause of the death is still unknown.

OFM News reports, he, however, says information at their disposal indicate that the leaner shared a chocolate with another learner before she suffered from what appeared as epilepsy. Ndaba confirms six other fellow learners are still receiving medical treatment.

This, comes after another tradegy on Monday when a taxi overturned outside Tweespruit and a child found trapped underneath.
