Pupil kills herself in protest against parents advice over sexual relationships

A Standard 7 girl has committed suicide by throwing herself in Lilongwe River after being reprimanded over multiple sexual relationships.

The deceased,  identified as Ethel John, 14, from Kabudula village,  traditional authority Katunga in Chikwawa,  killed herself on Thursday,  May 14 2020.

The girl, who was staying with her parents in Likuni, but was a learner at Kawale Primary School, was allegedly going around with several boys.

This prompted her parents to reprimand her, a thing which annoyed her.

Two weeks ago, the girl reportedly went to her uncle and threatened that she would kill herself in protest to her parent’s advice.

On Thursday, at about 4:00 hours, she was found drowned in Lilongwe River.

An autopsy examination on her body revealed that death was as a result of hypoxia secondary to drowning.

Meanwhile, police are warning people to exhaust appropriate channels to solve grievances unlike committing suicide.

A 14 year old is a minor. No need for this excessive identifying info.

how did you verify that she has several sexual relationships, did you catch her in the act? She is dead and you throw her real name out in public because this 14 year old cant answer for herself? How do you know the death wasn’t due to some other ill treatment etc…..

Exactly! I totally agree with you BigMan. This is so stupid and irresponsible journalism. Very uneducated article. How can a whole journalist write this and feel that they have done a good job worth publishing to the nation. Zero standards.

These are the kind of stories one hears along the gossip corridors and market places. Very very stupid journalism.
