Manicaland police spokesperson Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa on Monday confirmed the report that a 14-year-old girl committed suicide by hanging.
Beloved Choga from Nhokwara village in Buhera hung herself to death after being reprimanded by her mother for failing to perform household chores.
Reports indicate that on June 10, Beloved was quizzed by her mother Memory Choga (38) why she was not doing her household chores.
Dejected and depressed over her mother’s rebuke, Beloved left home a few hours later and her mother failed to locate her.
After searching for the teenager for hours without much success, villagers gave up the search only for Shadreck Nhokwara to stumble upon the juvenile’s corpse two days later hanging from a tree.
Nhokwara reported the matter to the nearby police station.
