A mentally disabled HIV-positive man in Zimbabwe reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself on Monday, Iharare reported.
The deceased 51- year-old from Mavikane Village in Zimbabwe had been suicidal for a while and was always threatening to kill himself saying he was tired of having to take pills everyday.
When his wife travelled to Ingutsheni Central Hospital in Bulawayo, he allegedly hung himself in his own home.
His brother, Mika Ngwenya, found him helplessly dangling from the roof around 6.30am.
“His wife left for Bulawayo at 5am and told me to check on him. I went there around 6.30am and was shocked when I saw him already dead,” he said.
Police spokesperson for Matabeleland North Province, Inspector Siphiwe Makonese, said she was yet to receive the report from the wife of the deceased.
