Harare Polytechnic Student Commits Suicide After His Girlfriend Of 4-Years Gets Impregnated By Another Man
A student from Harare Polytechnic committed suicide after his girlfriend of 4-years eloped to another man.
The deceased body of 27-year-old Takudzwa Chifamba was found hanging at his friend’s house in the same suburb in Highfield.
Battery acid, rat poison and a piece of rope were found next to his body.
Takudzwa decided to take his own life when he discovered that his girlfriend (only identified as Christine) had eloped after being impregnated by another man.
Family spokesperson Brian Chifamba confirmed Takudzwa’s tragic death saying;
“We have been robbed of a loving brother who showed brilliance in most of his works.”
“He failed to receive immediate counselling after he learnt about his lover’s pregnancy for another man,” he said.
He reportedly left a suicide note at Christine’s house and also sent similar notes to some of his friends.
In the suicide note,Takudzwa wrote that he regretted giving his love to Christine. He also revealed that there was a book with a written agreement with Christine to marry.
Before he committed suicide he tried to reach out to some of his friends but unfortunately they were not available. They only got to see his messages after he had passed on.
In a WhatsApp post addressed to his parents, Takudzwa apologized to them saying;
“Dear Mom and Dad, I’m sorry it has to happen this way. Just know that l love you so much.”
Speaking on Takudzwa’s death, social media influencer Wellence Mujuru addressed the issue of mental health awareness. He urged young people not to give up on life and to seek counselling when need be.
No Boys come lets talk, committing suicide might sound like an answer in your head but it is not, mental health is good and bad playing a battle in your mind. Don’t give up and you not alone. pic.twitter.com/t1hf04uoAA

This is sad. The society teaches every boy to man up and bottle emotions and this needs to be addressed before we loose the whole generation.. men are humans too they should be able to open up and not be judged for it

I think as men, we really have to admit that we can be emotional and depressed too. Let’s learn to give listening ears when our buddies are fretting over things we may think are petty…Sad,so sad. Hope the lady won’t be haunted by this ordeal
