Prosecutors are to continue with their preliminary inquiry this morning.  

KwaZulu-Natal Education MEC Kwazi Mshengu is livid.  

He says Moyeni's murder is an example of how violent society has become.

"If we had responsible citizens in our communities, surely this matter would have been prevented because nobody could have been mobilised by a minor learner to commit such a heinous crime," said Mshengu.

"We will continue to provide support to the family of the victim."

Mshengu says the department will be monitoring the court processes closely.

Meanwhile, Walters' family said he paid the price for standing up to a bully.

The boy's been described by his loved ones as a caring and helpful young man who was active at both his school and church.
