The 15 year-old who was bullying her was arrested
After her video goes viral all over South Africa, a hashtag of “#justiceforLufuno” also went viral and the department had to act to justify Lufuno. So, the lady who bullied her was arrested and we are still waiting to hear the proceedings of her case.
Lufuno spoke out to her family
Lufuno did spoke out to her family about the bullying incident and her family did showed concern but Lufuno remained overwhelmed and her best solution was to take her life away. Her family is devastated and looking for justice, they also said their daughter was peace loving child. The students who bullied her have been suspended so far.
A controversal letter written on behalf of Lufuno to her bullies
In recent news published by enca, Lufuno didnt write a suicidal note or letter to her bullies but somebody made it up for her. The letter below is what seculated as her suicidal note. We appologize for inconvinience.
“Forgive me for what I did wrong to you and what I did to you wasn’t so big for you to embarrass me in the eyes of the whole country…Where will I find strength to sit in a class and learn? When they pointed at me, looked at me, laughed at me it caused a pond of pain…Your doings made me (to) lose hope.” She said.
“May the God help you continue with the journey where I left off…May you get educated and materialise the dreams I had for my mother for them to become true. My soul is not resting, it is not resting in peace. It was sent to death by those better than me. The mighty God must not sympathize with you, my tears that shed shall cause a cloud of curse upon them. I hope you are happy considering I’ve passed on..,” she added.
There was no suicide note from the late #lufunomavhunga who committed suicide after being bullied at school. A pupil was seen repeatedly slapping Mavhunga in the video that was circulated on social media. #DStv403 #RIPLulu pic.twitter.com/lgBXjnAr09

Again she left us so soon. We hope Lufuno Mavhungo rests in peace! Her bully, Darlene Candy has appologized via her new facebook page which we could not confirm that it trully belongs to her.
Some think Mbili school where Lufuno attended should be called Lufuno Secondary school to end the violence at this school because Lufuno’s bullying incident wasnt the first one on this school. Check the following tweets.
If Mbilwi Secondary School is serious about fighting bullying, LET MBILWI BE RENAMED "LUFUNO SECONDARY SCHOOL"
