According to the publication, the student together with others had been selling and smoking cigarettes. Upon being alerted of the news, the deputy went to reprimand the pupils but an argument followed up that resulted into the deputy principal getting stabbed on the shoulder.
He was then rushed to hospital and police were alerted of the issue. A police spokeswoman, Constable Thenjiwe Ngcobo said it was alleged that the victim was performing his daily duties when he got stabbed by the suspect.
