Nchupetsang Attorneys has been revealed as the law firm appointed to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of 12-year-old Latoya Temilton. According to EWN, Temilton tragically drowned on a school excursion two weeks ago while attending a one-day outing at the Wag ‘n Bietjie resort in Witkoppen, Olifantsfontein.
The grade seven Laerskool Queenswood pupil’s untimely death has prompted a probe led by the law firm. Despite the school allegedly urging pupils and Latoya’s parents to refrain from speaking publicly about the incident, Gauteng Education MEC Matome Chiloane introduced Nchupetsang Attorneys, stressing that the investigation aims to provide closure to the grieving family.
“We need more answers around the pool, what happened in the pool, who didn’t do their work, who moved their eye from the children?” said Chiloane. Meshack Nchupetsang, representing the law firm, assured that they would present a comprehensive report to the department within seven days, outlining their consultations and interviews with all parties involved, including learners, teachers, the principal, the SGB, and the SMT.
Among other things, the report will also delve into allegations that pupils were asked to retrieve Temilton’s body.
