Article By: Diana Motsu


Thirty-one students from Mphuthe Junior Secondary School in Letlhakeng, have been sent home due to a recent outbreak of mass hysteria. Officials report that the students are experiencing symptoms such as numbness and weakness in their knees, drawing parallels to a similar incident at Lempu School in 2019 in Letlhakeng.


According to Letlhakeng Council Chairman Anderson Mathibe, the students were sent home to receive attention and support from their families while authorities addressed the situation. Mathibe emphasized the need for collaboration between the school, health and district officials, and other stakeholders to provide necessary assistance to the affected students. 


Mass hysteria, is a phenomenon where a group of people experiences similar physical or psychological symptoms without a clear medical cause. In March 2019, 133 students at Lempu Secondary School in Letlhakeng, displayed symptoms including abnormal leg movements and difficulty in walking.
