Following the unexpected death of Patrick Shai, the entire nation of Mzansi has been plunged into sadness. Ntate Patrick Shai, a veteran actor, director, and activist, committed suicide today at his home in Los Angeles. The reasons for his decision to commit suicide have not been revealed at this time, though.
According to the Sunday World News, veteran actor Patrick Shai committed suicide at his home in Dobsonville, Soweto, on Saturday night. There has been widespread speculation that his tragic death was linked to a viral video in which he challenged hip hop artist Cassper Nyovest to a boxing match. The news of his death has sent shockwaves across the country.
Those who disagree, on the other hand, cite him as having stated that he wants the boxing match to take place "before he dies," and question whether this is a cry for assistance. He died unexpectedly, and the actor's family has confirmed his death and asked for privacy while they deal with his sudden passing.
In recordings and photographs given by Sunday World, police officers and other members of the community can be seen outside Shai's home. After discovering Shai's lifeless body in his garage at his Dobsonville home, the men and women in uniform were at a loss for words.
Regardless of Shai's local celebrity, he didn't have as many neighbors as one might expect given his circumstances. Residents have provided the family with a safe haven where they may mourn without having to deal with annoying people who are looking for gossip.
In order to raise awareness about mental illness and the significance of getting competent care for persons suffering from depression, many people are working tirelessly to raise awareness.
One aspect that continues to be missed is how certain doctors display every indication of insulting the dignity of persons who have been diagnosed with mental illness, as well as of infantilizing them with the bland kindness of their medical expertise.
Another reason why patients often keep their thoughts to themselves and are hesitant to seek medical attention is because they are afraid of being judged. Shai's warning to Cassper was particularly foreboding in the case of the late Shai. His sole infraction was that he used derogatory language against Cassper's mother.
He may have cried out for help, or his outburst may have been a manifestation of internal agony. His demise was just around the corner. Suicide is not something that happens over a short period of time. It is a long-term issue rather than an immediate one.
He, like many other gloomy people, experienced well-documented issues. No one, in my opinion, is to be held responsible. Cassper, and certainly not his fans, are among them.
