Brown’s mother, Linda Sekhosana, 45, said that her son was going to be transferred to a new school for the coming year.

According to South Africa’s local media, Sekhosana revealed that she was shocked to see her son hanging in the garage of their home on a fateful Saturday.

She said, “He asked to be transferred to the new school immediately. I did not realize there was a problem at school because I was not notified of the incident.

“His friend then told us Charlie had become a laughing stock at school after he was forced to apologise for cheating.”

Brown’s 44-year-old stepfather, Thakamane Sekhosana said the principal was unprofessional.

He said, “It’s written in the school rules that a pupil should go through a disciplinary process or be given zero for cheating.”

Education department spokesman, Howard Ndaba, said they were aware of the incident.

She said, “We are waiting for a report from the district office. As soon as we get it, we will let you know.”

Sergeant Mamello Mokhuoane said: “An inquest was opened but no foul play is suspected.

“A post mortem will be done.”

A memorial service was held in his honour in the school.
