The sleepy community of Gutu has been thrown into confusion and turmoil after a man identified as Gwenhamo allegedly poisoned himself days after her wife hung herself.
Following the death of his wife, Gwenhamo could not keep up with the stress of taking care of their five kids which is the same reason why her wife also took away her life.
It is reported that Gwenhamo decided to end his life by drinking poison.
Narrating the circumstances that led to Gwenhamo’ death, his 25 year old son said:
“Recently, we lost our mother, she hung herself not so long ago and we were still mourning her and now this!
“Are we cursed, are we that much of a burden? If we are then we are just going to follow suit.
“No child should ever bury both of his parents this is not it.
“My mother gave up on us she hung herself on a mango tree days back, she was always complaining of failing to take good care of us.
“All she did was try and my dad also tried,” said Takapiwa in tears.
“I am only 25 I have a degree, no job now how am I supposed to take care of my siblings my father just gave up on us,
“Yesterday he just locked himself in the kitchen only to discover hours later he was no more after breaking the door.
“Yes, it has been hard for all of-us accepting we have lost a mother now this!” He lamented.
Burial proceedings of late Gwenhamo are yet to be finalized.
