Following the suicide of a Standard Two Kuke Primary School student earlier this month, District 5 police are investigating a similar case in which an 11-year-old girl hanged herself.

According to Maun Station Commander, Chenamo Orateng, the latest incident took place on Monday at the young girl’s family home in Boro 1.

The deceased, a Standard Six pupil, was staying with her grandmother who had gone into town to buy food on the fateful day.

“The grandmother had left the deceased with her younger siblings to go to the shops when their neighbour notified her of having found the girl hanging from the roof,” revealed Orateng, adding they are yet to establish what prompted the suicide.

“She did not leave any note and the grandmother denied having had any misunderstanding with the minor before leaving for the shops,” explained the top cop.
