People of Mzansi were outraged when the video of a bully bearing up Lufuno was posted on social media. Initially, people thought that they were fighting over a boy, lol high school girls usually do. It was later revealed that she was beaten over a R5 coin.
A close friend or acquaintance of Lufuno finally confirmed the reason she was assaulted. Kumkani Lusa Goqoza posted a long status on her Facebook page explaining the events that unfolded.
According to her, Darlene Candy (the bully) assaulted her because she said that she is beautiful. She proudly said that her dark skin is beautiful. “… Lufuno committed su_icide because a bully couldn’t stand her claiming her beauty. The bully beat her up while the schoolmates cheered. The bully was interfering with a situation where a light skinned girl argued that Lufuno couldn’t be beautiful because she is dark skinned..”
Lufuno was only claiming her beauty and Darlene was not even involved in the conversation. She beat up a poor girl for loving herself and standing up for herself.
