Many people are devastated by the news of this little girl's suicide attempt, which is widely regarded as tragic because it was completely avoidable. Many individuals are devastated by the situation and desperate for action to reverse the rising suicide rate in the country.

Since a nation, we have shockingly high rates of suicide, which demonstrates that our people are desperate for aid and in need of any type of support they can obtain to change their lives, as this is clearly not it.

Tragically, a 15-year-old student from Ndwendwe who had been expelled for wearing traditional clothes had been allowed to return to school by the department of education.

Perhaps the lack of professionalism in handling this situation was a contributing factor to her decision to take her own life. Sad to say, this is the first time we have ever heard of anything like this, and it leaves us wondering what the heck is going on and how these kids got themselves into this mess in the first place.

This student said that she had to wear Ibhayi over her uniform because she was answering a call from her ancestors. This is obviously very important to her, and she sought a means of expressing her devotion to tradition that would make her feel authentically religious. Unfortunately, such activities are forbidden by school policy, so they had to consult with the appropriate office before permitting her to continue.


The provincial education department was devastated to learn that a Nombika High School student from the iLembe district had committed suicide. This is a little incident that should have been prevented, so maybe the educators involved are feeling some regret.
