A young Grade pupil of 18 years of age at Vorentoe High School, committed suicide at her home in Klipspruit, South Africa after supposedly being bullied by her teacher.
Her name was Nicole Mnguni and she took her own life on Tuesday, January 8, after returning from the school to fetch her report, which they apparently refused to give to her. She left a note which details the assumed abuse by the teacher. She also stated she wanted peace and to be with her father. Mnguni is said to have been a victim of harassment and bullying by her teacher in school, and the institution is aware of the case, but had allegedly not taken any action to address the case.
The late girls mother, Jessica Mnguni is demanding justice. She said she saw that her child’s self-esteem was dead.
“Nicole is so bubbly but that woman killed her self-esteem, so she couldn’t take it. There was a time I went to the school, this teacher asked, are you Nicole’s mother?
“I said yes… She said your child, I was even shouting at her, she’s not doing well in class. I don’t know why she doesn’t drop it, and she’s not going to be anybody in life. I am not hurt, I am finished.”
Here is a photo of Mnguni’s suicide note below:
Nicole’s friend, Mmathabo Makibelo, labeled her as an amazing soul who had a vision.
