A 16-year-old girl has committed suicide in Lusaka’s Ngombe compound by throwing herself into a deep water well.
Police and fire brigade who labored to retrieve the body of the girl since morning only managed to do so around 14hrs.
The girl’s grandmother says she is saddened by the incident while residents attribute lack of running water as the major contributing factor to the death of their beloved one.
They say lack of running water in the community has resulted in residents digging water wells at almost every house which has become a danger to the community as young people are drowning and taking their lives by jumping or falling in the same wells.
