17-Year Old Girl Commits Suicide over Boyfriend

2ND SEPTEMBER, 2018 – A girl aged 17 years identified as Iveta Mbewe of Kalando village, Chief Mumbi in Petauke District committed suicide by taking maize preservative pesticide.

Brief facts are that the family discouraged the deceased from getting married to her boyfriend aged 20 years of the same village on the basis that she was young to get married.

Not happy with the family decision, Iveta decided to take her life by swallowing the pesticide. This happened on 1st September, 2018 at about 19 00 hours at her village.

She was rushed to Minga Mission Hospital where she later died at about 22 00 hours.

    parents find ways how you can hamoniously control the child …. you used anger !!!
    remember two people you cant control ,
    1. a man with money
    2.a lady in love.

    she was just stupid to take her life. parents had a better reason and thought, its only that these young chaps once they test sex ninshi they get glued to another life like they are in mars. as parents lets keep guarding our children and teaching them the morals of life and our tradition.

    17 is school going age especially tertially education. The guy could have engaged her then wait. Marriage act is clear below 21 yrs you need consent to marry. Always when dealing with teens ensure you look at what is the best interest of a child. Don’t be harsh but lay the facts plain before the child.
