Form 1 pupil bites 14 of his classmates in savage attack

One of the pupils had a chunk of flesh bit off his arm.

School authorities yesterday took some of the pupils to Filabusi District Hospital for medical tests. The juvenile (14) who cannot be named for ethical reasons reportedly went on a biting frenzy.

Sources at the school yesterday said veterinary officials visited the school as they feared the juvenile could be rabid.

Trance

“It just happened on Thursday; the boy was behaving like he had fallen into a trance. He bit his classmates and seriously injured one boy who had to be rushed to hospital bleeding.

‘’A chunk of flesh was removed from his arm sending shivers to pupils who witnessed the incident,” said a source.

His classmates, sources said, are now scared of the boy following the incident.

Ancestral spirits

“Pupils in his class were very scared as they had not seen such a strange incident before. Rumour swirled that the boy could either be possessed by ancestral spirits or he is rabid,” said another source.

The school head, only identified as Mr G Ndlovu declined to comment saying they were compiling a report on the unusual occurrence.

“I cannot comment on the matter. As you know I am not allowed to talk to the media but we are compiling a report to the DSI (District Schools Inspector) because we have sent the pupils to Filabusi Hospital for tests. We will submit the comprehensive report and then you can get it from the DSI,” said Mr Ndlovu.
