A 6-year–old boy allegedly committed suicide at school in Seshego outside Polokwane on Tuesday.

Mohau Mamaregane, a Grade 1 learner Dorothy Langa Primary School, was found hanging in the toilets.

It is alleged that the deceased requested to go to the toilet and when he failed to return back to the class, another learner was sent to go and look for him.

It was then that the gruesome discovery was made.

Limpopo cops spokesman Colonel Moetshe Ngoepe said the deceased was transported to the local clinic where he was confirmed dead on arrival.

Ngoepe said the South African Police Service in this province is condemning acts of child neglect and poor child safety measures especially at schools.

He said the motive and circumstances behind this incident is unknown at this stage.

“Members of the communities including educators are advised to put child safety first on the basis that their movements and whereabouts must be monitored at all times to prevent this type of incidents to happening,” said Ngoepe
