MIDDLEBURG- MEC for education, Ms Reginah Mhaule on Thursday paid a courtesy visit to the family of a 13-year-old learner who was allegedly paralyzed after being beaten by his school principal.

Mhaule assured Sphamandla Choma’s family that thorough investigations into the matter were conducted and proper steps were to be taken in the matter.

“I have received a preliminary report from the school, but there is a need to strengthen the report so that there are no loopholes in it. We have instituted an independent body from other districts to investigate the matter further,” she said.
