A 17-YEAR-OLD pupil from Hamilton High School who allegedly fatally stabbed a learner from Founders High School appeared in court today on 27 February facing a murder charge.
He was further remanded in custody to 9 March.
In his initial appearance on 15 February, he had been remanded in custody to today.
The boy, who cannot be named because he is a minor, allegedly stabbed to death Wayne Ndlovu (16) on 13 February during an inter-school turf war involving learners from Founders and Hamilton high schools.
According to court papers, the accused stabbed Wayne with a three-star Okapi knife in the neck during the fight, which occurred at the corner of Evesham Road and Plumtree Road. Wayne, who aspired to be a doctor, died at United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) where he was rushed for treatment.
