A 17-year-old female student at Lord Malvern High School is believed to have committed suicide after compromising images of her and a married man were published, creating an awful affair.
Vanessa Chirimhanzi, a Form 3 student, ingested rat poison following a fight with a classmate only known as Loveness.
Loveness leaked Vannesa’s intimate pictures with a married man, to the class WhatsApp group. The two fought over the issue before someone stopped the fight and took them to the school headmaster. The two were punished, but it marked the start of a difficult period for Vanessa. The girl allegedly suffered daily verbal abuse at the school after the incident.
As a way out, she is said to, have downed poison. In an effort to save her, Vanessa was rushed to Sally Mugabe Central Hospital where she unfortunately breathed her last.
Vanessa’s father, Cosmas Mutanhu, confirmed her death to H-Metro and declined to give further comment saying the case was being investigated by the police.
“Yes, my daughter died after taking poison. We cannot comment further since the case is now being handled by the police,” he said.
A source who spoke to the same publication disclosed how Vanessa went to school with extra clothes on the day she was taken out by her married lover. The source revealed that Loveness came across the pictures when Vanessa left her with her mobile phone.
“Vanessa was picked up on a Friday by her married lover. Loveness came across the nude pictures when Vanessa left her with her mobile phone, and she leaked them. Vanessa was shocked to be shown the pictures circulating in the class group and confronted Loveness since she was the only one who accessed her phone. The two fought and were ordered to spend the day digging and watering a garden at the school as part of their punishment,” said the source.
