Johannesburg - Two high school pupils appeared in the Krugersdorp Magistrate’s Court on Monday after being caught with a gun and live ammunition on Friday.
According to Kagiso police station commander Brigadier Sipho Ngubane, pupils at the Mosupatsela Secondary School reported to the deputy principal that Bongani Phapha, 19, and Joubert Tlou, 18, were in possession of a gun.
The deputy principal called the police, and the gun, which had been hidden on the school grounds, was recovered.
Initially, three pupils were arrested but the third teenager, a minor, was later released.
Ngubane said the firearm had been linked to a Kagiso house break-in about a month ago.
