Two high school pupils' excitement at a marriage proposal on the school grounds captured on video has been cut short.
Mduduzi Tlou, 18, proposed to his 16-year-old girlfriend (whose name is withheld because she is underage) at Tholulwazi Secondary School in Tsakane, Ekurhuleni, last week, with the video going viral on social media.
But a few hours after the two got "engaged" in front of cheering fellow pupils, the school confiscated a R2000 ring Tlou had bought for his girlfriend and suspended both pupils.
The pupils yesterday appeared before a school disciplinary hearing.
Tlou told Sowetan that they had been dating for eight months. He said he wanted to marry her because she had "changed" his life.
