A girl of 16 has taken her own life after being bullied. 

Lathitha Nako, a South African girl committed suicide after being subjected to bullying and accused of witchcraft by classmates. 

According to report, Lathitha swallowed pesticide and died in hospital on Wednesday, November 17 in the Eastern Cape, South Africa The Bhisho High School Grade 10 pupil in her dyeing moment said; 

“I want to be done; I feel so empty, I want to die and rest in peace so that I can be free.” 

Before her death, she spoke openly about the bullying she endured on social media platforms and how she was contemplating suicide. 

In a voice note to her friend and a message to her cousin obtained by local media, Lathitha relayed her agony of being ridiculed in front of classmates after she failed a test and being accused of witchcraft by other pupils. 

She then tells the friend that she was tired of fighting. Her devastated family is demanding that bullying at schools must be addressed to prevent similar tragedies. Nathitha wanted to become a doctor.

Her family had high hopes, but it was dashed by this tragedy. Mother Kholeka Nako says, 

“My heart is sore because l will never see Lathitha again l will only see her in pictures. My heart will remain sore Bisho High School has failed. I struggle to sleep.”

Calls from all quarters are being made to get to the bottom of the matter. 

Khula Community Development Project’s, Petros Majola says a program needs to be developed to stop bullying in schools. 

“Let us sit down and develop a program that deals with bullying at schools. We are aware that they do have their own policies but at the same time we are not sure that they are vocal about these policies.”

The Provincial Department of Education is also investigating the circumstances leading to her suicide. 

Eastern Cape Department of Education Spokesperson, Vuyiseka Mboxela says an urgent investigation is under way. 

There must be an urgent investigation tomorrow there is a meeting which is going to look holistic into this learner which is then going to give a directive and there is a multidisciplinary committee because there are other people outside the department who interested in this matter.” Mboxela said. 

Meanwhile, social workers will also be deployed to the school to provide support to learners and teacher.
