A Form Six learner who committed suicide at ZRP High School in Harare on Monday reportedly had a pending disciplinary issue with school authorities.
H-Metro reported sources as saying Prince Taonezvi (18) was expected to appear before a school disciplinary committee for allegedly fondling a female student’s breasts. Said a source:
Prince proposed to a female student sometime last week and his proposal was spurned.
He then found the girl standing next to a wall and grabbed her from behind, and fondled her breasts.
The girl screamed for help and shouted at him in anger.
The matter was reported to the headmaster, who asked the two to submit reports of what transpired.
Prince handed in his report and was told he would be called in for a hearing on a misconduct charge.
Prince reportedly hanged using a rope in a building that is still under construction at the school.
His body was discovered by two caretakers working on the school grounds.
Prince reportedly left a suicide note, whose contents were not released by the police.
