Yet again, South Africans watch in shock as a teenager assaults a fellow human being. This time, a video was shared showing a pupil attacking a bus driver while the bus is moving. Students can be heard screaming in fear as the driver is beaten.
A video has emerged showing another violent incident involving a South African pupil. The video has gone viral as it was shared on social media by shocked viewers.
The pupil is from a Mpumulanga school, Hoërskool Oosterland, and can be seen confronting the bus driver quite aggressively.
The driver tries to keep things calm as he does his job and drives the bus.
As the pupil comes threateningly comes closer, the driver holds out a hand to stop. The pupil then slaps the man.
Fortunately, the driver succeeds in stopping the bus just as the pupil attacks him and pins him to his seat, beating him with his fists.
It is not clear how this violent incident ended, as the video stops shortly after this.
The Education Department of Mpumalanga has since condemned the behaviour of the pupil and an investigation into the incident has been launched.
South Africa's youth seems to be spinning out of control. Earlier, Briefly.zo.za reported that a teenager took his parents car for a dangerous joyride and now faces charges of reckless driving.
Even worse are the reports that a 16-year-old EC student has been charged with the murder of a fellow student and a teenage boy from Zeerust, North West, was arrested after he stabbed a teacher to death.
South Africans took to social media to express their horror and disappointment in this violent teenage behaviour:
