Standard 4 learner hangs himself

55

A 12 year-old primary school learner in Machinga has committed suicide after he was found to have stolen his mother’s money.

Machinga Police confirmed the incident and identified the deceased as Billy Ngulinga.

Machinga police spokesperson said on January 25 this year Billy stole his mother’s money amounting to K10,000.

When the mother suspected Billy of stealing the money, she followed him to a video show where her suspicions were confirmed but she only recovered K7,000 only from her son.

When he was asked about remaining amount, he said his friend took it.

Brian Ndau: Parents need to ponder on their children’s up bringing.

The following day the Standard 4 learner went missing and in the evening his sister found him hanging dead in his room.

Villagers took him to Machinga health centre where he was pronounced dead and postmortem results revealed the death was due to strangulation.

Commenting on the issue, Brian Ndau who is a social worker said some cases of these nature are caused because of the way parents treat their children.

He further said young children emulate elder people and when people are committing suicide children also think that’s the way to solve problems.

“Let me advise parents to take very good care of their children 100 percent and advise them in a polite manner. The good behaviour and necessary solutions to solve issues should start with parents themselves,” Ndau said.

  10. Sometimes its how parents talk to their chilren! please parents, the bible says do not provoke your children to anger (Eph 6:1) May his soul rest in peace! If God forgives, what about you forgiving your own son, how do you think now that he is gone, no chance to correct him, no chance to forgive him, its obvous conscious will fight you for a longtime!
