JOHANNESBURG – A 17-year-old teenager who is accused of killing a grade 1 pupil at a North West primary school will make his court appearance on Thursday. His case is being heard  in the Moretele Magistrates Court.

The grade 11 pupil allegedly stabbed and killed a seven-year-old boy inside the school bathroom at Dikeledi Makapan Primary school.
