A South African student was desperate not to miss his final year mathematics exams forcing him to do the unthinkable to save the situation.
Le-Aan Adonis, a high school student got behind the wheel of the school vehicle when the driver failed to show up and drove his fellow students to school. The incident happened on Thursday.
Adonis told eNCA he found the keys in the bus. Other students said they asked the 20-year-old to drive because they trusted he could handle a bus. The bus was stopped by a traffic officer a short distance from the school in a village in the Western Cape province as the students arrived on time for their exam. However, Adonis was fined 5,000 rand (about $361) by the authorities.
According to eNCA, Adonis faces a school disciplinary hearing. He has already received offers of free legal representation and donations for his fine.
