Churchill Boys High Pupil Was Obsessed With Suicidal Thoughts

The Churchill Boys High School 18-year-old pupil who committed suicide last week suffered from depression and was contemplating taking his own life for some time before he jumped to his death from a building in central Harare.

Mbuya Chari, who was taking care of Takudzwa Nigel Chirindo in Dzivaresekwa, revealed that her grandchild was fearful of failing his exams and disappointing his mother, a single parent, who is working in South Africa. Said Mbuya Chari:

Before he died, he was asking his friends about a building where a pastor committed suicide and he always said he wanted to jump off a building so he can die but I always discouraged him.

At one time, he said he was trying to find someone who owns a gun and we were so worried about it.

Takudzwa reportedly gave his satchel to a colleague who he instructed to hand it to Mbuya Chari before he committed suicide.

A few weeks ago, pastor Berry Dambaza of Upper Room Ministries committed suicide by jumping off from the same building.
