Teenage Girl Commits SUICIDE After Getting PREGNANT

An 18 year old teenager of Ndola’s Kabushi township who got pregnant out of wedlock has committed suicide after her family reprimanded her over her pregnancy.
According to her bereaved uncle, Lameck Chalwe who confirmed the development said that Nancy Chitambo, left home on Friday afternoon stating that she had gone to see her grandmother who lives within Kabushi.
Mr Chalwe said the girl did not show any signs of being sad after she was questioned about being pregnant but that they were surprised that she decided to take her life.
“The reasons for committing suicide are not clear because when we asked her if indeed she was pregnant,she admitted and there were no signs of her being bitter, so we are shocked as a family that she could have taken her life over flimsy reasons,” Mr Chalwe said.
He said the teenager’s body was only discovered on Tuesday in a bush near Indeni Oil Refinery plant after members of the public informed them that there was a body of a teenager which was seen hanging on a tree.
