Thyolo has been singled out by the police as the leading district in suicide cases in southern region and law enforcers are attributing this to rising marital problems in the tea growing district.
Southern region police spokesman James Kadadzera said the commercial city of Blantyre is closely trailing Thyolo in suicide cases.
“Suicide notes we recover show that marital problems are the leading cause of suicides in Thyolo. We urge people to consult marriage councillors, traditional leaders, church leaders or the police whenever they are faced with these problems.
“We have fully fledged departments at each police station to deal with such issues,” said Kadadzera.
He second the second cause of one’s hanging himself or herself are diseases, saying some people do not want to face prolonged sickness and decide to terminate life before it gets harder and tougher.
Police spokesman said this was misconception as some people have managed to recover and are key to the country’s development.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
