A 13-Year Old Girl Commits Suicide Over Married Lover

A 13 year old Mwansabombwe girl has committed suicide after it was discovered that she was having love affair with a married man.
Luapula Province police commissioner Malcolm Mulenga confirmed the development in an interview yesterday.
Mulenga said Maidess Chongo of Kabalenge village in senior chief Mwata Kazembe’s area was on Thursday around 05:00 hours found hanging on a tree behind her parents’ house.
“The man was interviewed and admitted having a love affair with the deceased,” Mulenga said.
Mulenga, however, said the bereaved family was demanding compensation from the man, whose identity has been withheld.
“The relatives to the deceased believed that he caused the girl to hang herself and should therefore compensate them. The deceased’s body has been deposited to Mbereshi Mission Hospital mortuary,” said Mulenga.
