An illegal initiation school in Poortjie near Lenasia was set alight by the police yesterday.

The initiates could not produce medical papers allowing them to be circumcised, while the men in charge of the school did not have permits as is required by the law.

38 initiates aged between 15 and 22 were rescued from 5 illegal schools in the area.
