Bulawayo: A 23-year-old student at Hillside Teachers’ College in Bulawayo allegedly committed suicide by throwing herself into Hillside Dams where she drowned.
Ms Nokulunga Ngwenya of Bulawayo’s Mpopoma suburb who left a suicide note saying her family would find her at Hillside Dams, had, according to sources, been diagnosed with cancer.
A man who was taking his dogs for a walk discovered Ms Ngwenya’s body floating in the dam during the early hours of Monday.
Family members had since Friday last week been searching for her after stumbling on her suicide note which she left at home under her cellphone on Thursday.
When she did not return home on the day she left the suicide note, family members reported her missing to the police but were advised to wait for 48 hours.
The family members however decided to conduct the search on their own at the Hillside Dams which was her favourite hang out but all was in vain.
It was not until Monday that the man who was taking his dogs for a walk discovered the body floating in the dam. chronicle
