Bullying is a major problem for many people around the world. People are bullied at work, school, and a slew of other places. So many people seem to be unaware of the harm bullying can do to a person's mental health.
It saddens me to see people gathering their strength in order to bully those who are weaker. Mbilwi Secondary School outside Thohoyandou was the site of a student suicide last year after he was bullied. Lufuno Mavhunga, a grade 10 student, committed suicide because she was bullied by her peers at school.
Because of her skin color, they used to humiliate her and call her names. A fellow student witnessed her being beaten and humiliated in front of others.
When she got home, she realized she couldn't handle the stress any longer and took her own life. When she ingested the medication her mother had given her, she overdosed. Sadly, the medical staff at the facility determined that she had died.
As a result of their high expectations, her family must have been devastated to lose her in this way. A student in Eastern Cape once again drank poison and took her own life.
Lathitha Nako, a student at the Eastern Cape's Bisho High School, committed suicide after being accused of witchcraft by her classmates.
Because of the bullying she suffered at school, another Limpopo student tragically committed suicide. To end her own life, a high school student in the Maruleng Municipality of South Africa hanged herself because of what people had said about her.
Her peers are said to have bullied her and made fun of her family's financial situation at school. Sadly, she couldn't handle the pressure because she was born into a poor family and had a difficult childhood.
She told her parents that they would form a team and attack her as she made her way home from school on occasion. It's a tragedy that her life ended in such a way for her family, given how difficult it was for her. We're expecting a lot of her. When they have to say goodbye to her in this way, it must be unbearable for them.
What their child went through will never be forgotten by them. If someone is caught bullying someone else, they should be punished in a way that they won't forget. What do you think about this issue? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
