Learning was disrupted at Mzimba High School in Lephong Village outside Thulamahashe near Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga on Thursday afternoon.
This after pupils spotted a black mamba in their classroom.
But Cockroach Mdluli from Bushbuckridge Local Municipality joined forces with Sabi Sand snake catchers to remove the snake.
Mdluli told the publication they were alerted by school teachers that there was a snake in one of the classrooms, identified as a black mamba.
“We rushed to the scene and on arrival we found pupils waiting outside the classroom. The team from Sabi Sand joined us in removing the snake.
“The school is surrounded by bushes and the snakes come for food which can cause harm to humans’ lives if they provoke them. We want to warn people not to try to kill snakes because it’s dangerous,” said Mdluli.
One of the pupils said they are grateful that the snake has been removed after it terrified them while they were busy learning.
“We don’t know how it entered the classroom. We just saw it on the corner of the ceiling. We didn’t know that we have black mambas in the area,” said the pupil.
