Two boys commit suicide in a row

The 2015-2016 academic year commenced on September 7th brought miseries “onto” the family of Kanjuchi as their 20 year old boy Joseph, committed suicide in a puzzling circumstance.

Lilongwe police publicist Kingsly Dandaula told -Lilongwe News Agency (Lina) that the form three student at Nsaru Community Day Secondary School-CDSS hanged himself, after his parents declined to his wishes of changing schools from Nsaru to Chinsapo about 40 kilometers away from Lilongwe City, on grounds that such an exercise is both unreasonable and costly.

Dandaula explained that Joseph Kanjuchi, who hails from Mawanga village Traditional Authority Kabudula in Lilongwe district, had suggested to is parents that in the next school season, he would like to learn at Chinsapo CDSS on account that a chance for him to be selected to University was high unlike at the remotely situated Nsaru CDSS.

However, the request immediately met with stiff resistance from the parents, arguing that such a belief wasn’t true. This did not go down well with the deceased hence the suicide.

Another victim according to Dandaula was Gabriel David 18, of Chilalo village Traditional Authority Khongoni in Lilongwe district, who after squandering family money also thought of taking away his life in a bizarre manner as well.

Narrating the sad story Dandaula said, on Monday 17th September 2015, the late Gabriel was given K120, 00 to buy maize for the family but instead, he used it for excessive beer drinking and womanizing.

And that the following day-Tuesday, the boy defiantly came back home empty-handed to take a bicycle and sold it at Mkoko Trading centre in the area without the knowledge of his father, and thereafter surprisingly “though” he committed suicide.

“On the night of Tuesday and Wednesday respectively, all of them were separately found dead-by-hanging, in different houses also, and the postmortem conducted at Kabudula health centre revealed that the two died due to suffocation,” said Dandaula.

Dandaula however, has advised members of the general public not to commit suicide as a last solution to their problems but that they should exercise endurance and perseverance.

Cases of suicide in the country are on the increase “especially” amongst the youth, widely believed to be emanated from other factors, like excessive beer drinking and drug abuse, an act if not properly checked deemed a detrimental to national development.

Mr Police Spokesperson, Explain to me how Gabriel David used R120.00 to buy what you call excessive beer and prostitutes? How much is a sex worker cost in Malawi and how much is a beer? Did the police conduct a thorough investigation or you just got reports from a health clinic postmortem? Malawi need answers!!!- Am watching you

Why is it that people think suicide is the only solution to problems. Please personally think wise because hell is waiting for everyone who commits a sin of murder. Love your life and dont leave your life.
