The Sowetan newspaper published two stories which reported on two schools in Limpopo, that have been closed down due to pupils collapsing, This is believed to be caused by an evil spell, Satanism and witchcraft. The manner in which the story was published is of concern to Media Monitoring Africa because it violated children’s rights and failed to demonstrate quality, fair and ethical journalism.

MMA’s children media monitors studied the two articles and suggested that the newspaper should have explored the likelihood that pupils collapsed due to medical reasons, they continued to give their opinion on the articles published.
