Glenwood boys say final farewell
The boys at Glenwood High School have said their final goodbyes to fellow pupil Sakhile Manzini, who was killed after being hit by a car last week.
The 14-year-old died after being hit by a car while crossing Rick Turner Road (formerly Francois Road).
He was laid to rest in Swaziland this past weekend.
Manzini’s parents were invited to an assembly at the school yesterday.
Two of the teenager’s friends paid tribute to him while the school’s choir sang during the proceedings.
Headmaster Trevor Kershaw says the assembly helped bring some closure for Manzini’s friends and classmates.
“I think today was important for closure for those boys, so that they can move on and think about the good times they had together,” he said.
Kershaw says Manzini was a well liked pupil.
“Just a very happy-go-lucky young man. Like all of the boys here [he] played a lot of sport and enjoyed the classroom.”
