The grade 8 Parktown Boys’ High pupil, Enock, was found dead on Friday after drowning while on a school orientation camp.

His disappearance allegedly went unnoticed for 17 hours after a makeshift raft overturned at about 3pm on Wednesday in the Crocodile River.

TimesLIVE reported that the family, with the SAHRC, arrived at the lodge to find a locked gate.

The commission’s acting legal head, Buang Jones, said the lodge's representatives had agreed to the visit, before later referring him to their lawyers.


Taking to social media, many weighed in after seeing the video.
