Likangala Secondary School  student hangs himself for impregnating fellow learner

A form two student of Likangala Secondary School in Zomba on Friday night committed suicide by hanging himself after being known that he was responsible for pregnancy of a fellow learner at the school.

Zomba Police Station Public Relations Officer Sub Inspector Patricia Supiliano confirmed the death of Ashraf Peter, aged 17.

Sipiliano said on February 6, 2020, Ashraf said to his mother that his fellow students were mocking him for impregnating his fellow student at the same school.

“The deceased started talking about committing suicide since the day he informed his mother on the matter.

“On the fateful day of 7th February 2020, Ashraf left home at around 2 p.m. for a video show and did not return home till the following morning when his brother found him hanging in a mango tree,” Supiliano said.

He then reported the matter to his mother who informed the police. His body was taken to Zomba Central Hospital where postmortem results proved that the death was due to suffocation.

Meanwhile, Police in the district are advising the community to avoid taking their own lives due to frustrations and depression but seek counseling and guidance.

They further urged parents and guardians to monitor their children as soon as they have noted something strange or a change in their behaviour or attitude.

Ashraf Peter hailed from Simion Village in Traditional Authority Malemia in Zomba District.
