Talks over boy's suicide

A TEAM from the SA Human Rights Commission spent three hours behind closed doors in a meeting with teachers at the troubled Scottsville Primary School in Pietermaritzburg.

The commission dispatched the team this week to establish why 13-year-old pupil S'duduzo Qulo had killed himself.

The schoolboy hanged himself at his home on Sunday after telling his mother that he was not prepared to be taught by a "racist" teacher.

Human rights manager Tanuja Munnoo said they had not visited the school to "investigate" but to give their "support".

Munnoo declined to give details of their discussions with pupils and staff members.

S'duduzo will be buried tomorrow.
