After the fainting incident the student’s sister inquired what the student had eaten which resulted in him revealing that he had been given a cake mixed with marijuana by a friend. The sister reported the matter to the police leading to the arrest of the Kushinga-Phikelela student. Police recovered a half-filled flour packet and a pan.
