A 10 year-old standard four student in Salima is reported dead after committing suicide.

Salima Police Publicist Sergeant Gift Chitowe confirmed of the development in an interview and identified the boy as Juda Nkhata from Juma Village in the area of T/A Maganga in the district.

According to Chitowe, the deceased, a leaner at Kacherenje Primary School in the area of Traditional Authority (TA) Maganga in the district committed suicide on Monday 29th September.

“According to the statement given to Police investigators, he hanged himself using a neck tie, in his bedroom,” said Chitowe.

Chitowe said that the parents suspect that the deceased was moved to take his own life after he did not agree with the piece of advice from his parents over his unbecoming behavior.

“Before he committed suicide he had been grilled by the parents over his behavior and that did not go down well with him and in his anger he decide to take off his life,” said Chitowe.

Chitowe said that on the day the deceased lied to the parents that he was going to school, but instead he just locked himself in his bedroom and silently took his life away.
