In a separate and equally heart-wrenching incident, iBulawayo reported the suicide of a Form One pupil from Bulawayo. The young girl allegedly took her own life in her bedroom while her eight-year-old sister was present in the same room. The victim’s brother revealed that his sister had used a plastic-like rope to hang herself from the roof truss in her bedroom.
