There was mayhem at Likhubula LEA School on Tuesday and classes were disrupted abruptly after 14 students were attacked by a strange sickness.
According to a Likhubula School official speaking on condition of anonymity, 14 students had fainted one after the other whereby causing panic and forcing School officials to end classes.
“We have a few students who faint and most of the times when this happens we take them to the office for first aid treatment. However, today’s case was unusual as there were a large number of cases that we have never seen before,” said the school official.
He said after receiving the alarming cases, they called a nearby police unit for help.
“Luckily, the police came and provided us with transportation. We drove the students to hospital where they have been treated. As I am speaking, everybody is fine, the situation is calm and we are looking forward to resuming classes tomorrow,” he narrated.
However, he said they are under pressure from concerned parents and other individuals inquiring what exactly had happened.
“Until now we also don’t know how this happened. Even hospital officials are simply describing it as a case of fainting,” he disclosed.
Ironically, all the 14 students are in standard 8.
