Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News/feature - Than­deka Moyo Chron­i­cle Re­porter

A MAN from Bulawayo com­mit­ted sui­cide by hang­ing him­self in his friend’s toi­let for un­clear rea­sons.

Jotham Mh­langa (55), a di­vorcee, vis­ited his friend Mr Al­bert Phiri who stays in Iminyela Sub­urb Flats on Mon­day night to an­nounce that he had bought a house nearby. He went to the toi­let and never re­turned. Mr Phiri’s sis­ter be­came sus­pi­cious at around 4AM when Mh­langa de­layed com­ing out of the toi­let.

“I even­tu­ally woke up as my sis­ter des­per­ately wanted to use the toi­let. I opened the toi­let door only to find my friend hang­ing and he was al­ready dead by then,” said the emo­tional Mr Phiri.

He told The Chron­i­cle that po­lice found a mes­sage in Mh­langa’s phone say­ing he had tried to com­mit sui­cide sev­eral times.

Mr Phiri said he was still dis­turbed as Mh­langa had not showed signs of dis­tress the day they re­tired to bed af­ter sup­per. — @thamamoe.
