Teen fails grade 9, hangs self


In a tragic incident, a 15-year-old boy from Okahandja committed suicide on Monday after revealing his school report card.


The police reported that the deceased who was a grade 9 pupil kept his school report from his family until this week when he revealed to his sister that he had failed grade 9.


His sister told the police that they did not argue about the report and that their parents were in Katima Mulilo and had not seen report at the time.


The teen allegedly threw the report at his sister. He was later found hanging from the thatched room of a room where he hung himself with a jersey.


He did not leave a suicide note. Police investigations in the matter continue.
