Police investigate death of 30-year-old Jackalas 2 man

Tshesebe Police are investigating the death of a 30-year-old Jackalas 2 man suspected to have hanged himself following an altercation with his girlfriend.

In an interview with BOPA, Tshesebe Police Station Commander Superintendent Amos Kekgathetse said a passerby found the man hanging from a tree Wednesday morning and informed  police.

According to police, the deceased had a fight over the phone with his girlfriend, who lives in Selebi Phikwe, during which he threatened to kill himself.

Supt Kekgathetse said the girlfriend then alerted the victim’s friends about his plans but he is believed to have disappeared into the bush before they arrived at his place, where he lived alone.

The station commander said police were still to meet with the girlfriend to establish what could have pushed the man to take his own life.

Noting that it was common for people who committed suicide to have been going through some emotional trauma, Supt Kekgathetse emphasised the importance of  seeking counselling when going through a rough patch. 

In addition, he said people should establish relationships with either family members or friends who could offer emotional support when needed.ends
