Preg­nant Zim woman throws self at train in Ger­many

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page - Pamela Shumba

A ZIMBABWEAN woman al­legedly com­mit­ted sui­cide by throw­ing her­self in front of a mov­ing train in Ger­many af­ter she dis­cov­ered that she was preg­nant.

Lyn­nette Nx­u­malo (24) was daughter to the late Bu­l­awayo busi­ness­man Ed­win Nku­l­uleko Nx­u­malo, who was pop­u­larly known as “Cap­tain” in the city.

Nx­u­malo suc­cumbed to kid­ney fail­ure in May last year.

Sources close to the fam­ily told The Chron­i­cle that the train chopped Lyn­nette’s body to pieces on Fri­day.

She re­port­edly left a sui­cide note apol­o­gis­ing to her fam­ily. “I’m sorry guys this will hurt you but I’m preg­nant and at work they were not go­ing to ac­cept me. This is the only way. Sorry to you guys,” reads the sui­cide note.

When The Chron­i­cle vis­ited her home in Pad­don­hurst yes­ter­day, where mourn­ers are gath­ered, fam­ily mem­bers de­clined to com­ment on Lynette’s death, say­ing they were still wait­ing for in­ves­ti­ga­tions to be con­cluded in Ger­many.

“Un­for­tu­nately we don’t have any in­for­ma­tion. Po­lice in Ger­many are still in­ves­ti­gat­ing. We’re yet to know what ex­actly tran­spired,” said a rel­a­tive who spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity.

The late Nx­u­malo owned a car show­room and ran a restau­rant in Pad­don­hurst sub­urb. — @ pame­lashumba1
