128

A 16 year-old girl in Machinga district has committed suicide after the man responsible for her pregnancy left her for another girl.

Machinga police have confirmed of the death and identified the deceased as Alinafe Chiwanga.

Machinga police public relations officer Davie Sulumba told our reporter on Friday that the deceased was two months pregnant and a man known in the area as Alabi was responsible for the pregnancy.

“It was believed that the boy denied the responsibility of the pregnancy,” Sulumba said.

Death hangingAccording to Sulumba, on Thursday Alinafe saw the boyfriend with another girl and this hurt her such that she went home and hanged herself in her room.

During the evening, Alinafe’s grandmother Linly Harrison called for her and when the girl did not respond the woman went to her (Alinafe’s) room where she found the girl hanging from the roof. Harrison also found a suicide note in the room.

Postmortem conducted at Chamba Health Centre revealed that the death of Alinafe was due to suffocation.

Meanwhile Sulumba has advised Malawians to seek help when they face challenges

“We would like to advise the general public that if they have any misunderstanding they should consult the police who can help them effectively and in a professional manner rather than rushing to make horrible decisions,” Sulumba advised.

Alinafe Chiwanga hailed from Mbando village in the area of Traditional Authority Mposa of Machinga District.

  10. I see sad stupid comments of “clever” Malawians who think that poor girl as a stupid and a sinner. Shame! Some clever Malawians who are quick to comment and judge yet they know nothing how different individuals respond to difficult situations. We all need some counselling when we are so confused beyond our reasoning

  16. She was not counselled, I age parents to well advice their young ones when they are in this problem rather than taking a tough stand against them because they lose hope

    • Ur very right. With proper counselling and the parents / guardians showing love and understanding, such losses could be avoided

  17. At such a younger age she couldnt figure out what life real means and the expected inevitable hindrances to meet so that she could have concrete decisions and reasonable ones too ,Ladies be strongminded and live with greatminds to avoid cases like these!

    • They are not stupid sometimes the problem comes from our parents kuti how dd they handle the matter.Makolo ena sadziwa kulankhula zikafika munyengo ngati imeneyi inuyo nyengo yamimba mumaidziwa sibwino kumuyankhula motupa mwana akakhala munyengo u just need to treat her nicely akachira then u advice her it may happened makolo sadamuyankhule bwino mwamunayo atamukana.So palibe ochenjera pa imfa

    • She was not stupid. She lacked counselling. U don’t know nothing about how different human beings respond to awkward difficult situations. Mind u she was only 16, so young for mature reasoning

    • #Esther Chipao, emotional and psychological confusion is more harmful than physical pain. Everyone would love to live longer, have u ever for one moment thought the state of mind one is before committing suicide? That’s why there’s counselling out there to deal with troubled minds. And family members should be there for family members, freinds should be there for freinds and a society should be there for a troubled individuals. Only if we were less selfish and more available for others, such losses of life could be avoided. I strongly disagree with ur judging of that poor soul
