instead of five because of the recession, was
accompanied by an older son---a son who
was adamant that his little brother had done
absolutely no wrong.
She is hoping it can all blow over soon.
He's not a criminal
The older brother, a bartender at a south
nightclub, said he was happy and proud to
see his younger brother excel in school and
have a dream. He said he had never gone
down the "criminal road."
"I look like the criminal. I am going to
sing about violence out here and get the
youths organised for this because it is out

He said there were many "good" youths
and people needed to assess situations prop-
erly before jumping to conclusions.
Throughout the interview, mother and
son repeated, "he is a good child."
Asked to describe her second child, the
mother said, "He is a good student.
"If you talk to his teachers...he is a good
student. Some of the teachers in school
right now are so saddened by it because he

The young boy has since gone into iso-
lation, the mother said.
She said he has not been sleeping or
eating and refused to leave the house.
He has since pleaded guilty to the offence
but the events have had a negative impact
The mother said, "While I understand
the teacher felt threatened by what he said
to her, he admitted he was wrong and knows
that he made a silly mistake.
"At the spur at the moment he just said
it. He is not the type of person to do that.
My son is a real quiet boy, a quiet child. I
would go to work and come back and some-
times food cooked already."
She said because of innocence, he did
not even understand at the point in time
how serious things had become after the
police were called to the school.
Regarding other illegal and gang-related
