Sabelo Mbhele, originally from KwaZulu-Natal, was stabbed eight times by another student, according to his brother, Bonginkosi Mbhele. The alleged perpetrator is still on the run.
“He’s badly injured. He’s in a critical stage. He recently wrote his exit exam and is scheduled to graduate in October. He was doing a course in local government,” said Bonginkosi.
“He’s fighting for his life in hospital. The guy who did this ran away and we aren’t sure whether the police will catch him.”
Bonginkosi said the incident happened on Thursday night in the wake of the SRC elections.
