Sixteen-year-old Gloria Gabriel of Nyamatcherenga Village in Senior Chief Malenga in Nsanje committed suicide on Friday leaving a suicide note that stated the reason for her final act.

Nsanje Police Public Relations Officer Sergeant Agnes Zalakoma confirmed of the incident .

“Gloria was a standard 7 learner at Malindi Full Primary School. She was found by her relations hanging inside her grandmother’s house bedroom. She used a twine string to hang herself,” Sergeant Zalakoma said.

She further said the police discovered a suicide note purportedly written by the deceased which indicated that she hanged herself because of hard times she was going through.

“I have encountered several challenges in my life. I have done this willingly so that you should be happy always. Thank you for this.

“My life has ended here. I have to follow my father where he is. I am gone. I am going to hell,” reads part of the Gloria’s suicide note.

Sergeant Zalakoma has since advised people in Nsanje district to seek psychosocial support when they have problems rather than resorting to suicide.
