MANZINI – A fight after the news that his girlfriend was pregnant saw a Form V pupil miss three examination papers.


This is the plight of Ciniso Sikhondze (23) of Nkiliji, who is currently at home while his schoolmates are proceeding with examinations. The cause for the pupil missing his exam was a physical altercation that he had with his girlfriend *Gugu (22) while at school. The girl is said to be in the same class as Sikhondze.


According to Sikhondze, on Tuesday, he was called by his girlfriend while waiting to write their second paper of the day. When he gave her audience, he said Gugu informed him that she was three months pregnant.


In a bid to ascertain whether she was serious, Sikhondze said he denied he was responsible, not knowing that Gugu would use a pen in an attempt to stab him. “I hastily evaded being stabbed and out of anger I used a broom stick to hit her,” he said. During the assault, Sikhondze said teachers came through and he was shown the gate by the school head teacher.


For a week now, Sikhondze said he had been home and had missed three papers already. His fear is that he will not be able to write the papers since 24-hours had elapsed, which is the allowance to sit for an examination after the specified time. “I have reported the matter to the Manzini Regional Education Office (REO) and I was told to go to the head teacher to ask for forgiveness,” he said.


In his narration of the events leading to his stay at home, the pupil said he was arrested for insulting his girlfriend with whom he had disagreements. Sikhondze said he remained in police custody for five days. “She said I assaulted and strangled her, which was not true. The charges were dropped and I was freed on September 2,” he said.
