Classes were disrupted and teaching was brought to a complete standstill at Nsikayendlu High School in Ulundi, northern Zululand, yesterday as pupils and a teacher fainted.
While no reasonable or medical explanation has been given, teachers and pupils have attributed this to a possessive "demon".
More than 50 pupils and a teacher have been affected. Yesterday a priest from the local Revival Worshippers Church was called in to pray. Mbali Thusi, spokesman for the provincial education department, confirmed the incidents. - Canaan Mdletshe
