An investigation has been launched into the death of an 8-year-old girl after three bullies allegedly kicked and beat her.

The incident took place at Batsogile Primary School in Soweto.

"This matter only came to our attention yesterday [Monday]," Gauteng education department spokesperson Phumla Sekhonyane told Sapa.

"An independent investigation has been instituted to investigate the circumstances around this incident."

The Daily Sun reported that Lebohang Makala returned home from school on 14 February limping, with swollen legs.

She told her mother, Martha Makala, that three boys at school had beaten her for no reason.

"Lebohang said one of the boys hit her on the head with his fist. She said the boys attacked her, threw her to the floor, and kept on hitting her," said her mother.

Apparently no teachers were present at the incident and the other children could not find anyone to help the girl.


Her family took her to the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital where she was given medication and had X-rays taken, after which she returned home.

She was taken back to hospital on Thursday.

She died on Friday, a week after the attack.
