Bloemfontein - Bloemfontein police were on Wednesday investigating a case of murder after a man was beaten to death, allegedly by residents of Heidedal, amid scenes of chaos at a local school.

“At this stage, we cannot confirm why he was attacked. We’ve opened a case of murder to investigate, but there have been no arrests,” said police spokesman Zweli Mohobeleli.

“We heard about chaos at schools and went to investigate but there was no incident to report as a criminal act.”

Local media in Bloemfontein have been reporting that gangsters were terrorising pupils in Heidedal, prompting residents to take the law into their own hands.

Free State education department officials were not immediately available to comment.
