Kanye man who tried to take his own life by hanging himself in his bedroom last month was discharged from Kanye Seventh Day Hospital last week, Kanye Police Station Commander Mmoloki Mogale has said.
He told The Midweek Sun that the man, 30 years old, had a misunderstanding with his 39 years old girlfriend just before Easter holidays. “It happened around 3.30am when she arrived home and would not tell him where she was from,” he said. The woman would then go to use the toilet and come back, only to find him hanging from the roof of the house, with foam issuing from his mouth.
“She managed to cut the robe fast, and he was rushed to the hospital,” said Supt. Mogale, adding the couple stayed together at Goo Lobekwa ward. Supt. Mogale advises couples to seek counselling from social workers, parents, pastors and police during difficult times of their relationships.
