A Grade 10 learner, Lathitha Nako, was a learner at Bisho High School, who took her life earlier this week after she had experienced bullyism and harassment on school grounds by her fellow classmates.
The classmates were calling her names and claimed that she was demonic and accused her of practising witchcraft because of her gift.
Nako had reported this matter several times
to her teachers, they did not take it seriously and no action was taken to deal with the bullies instead the teachers had told her she should change schools.
Lathitha could not handle the whole situation anymore and had blamed herself for being bullied because of her spiritual calling and committed suicide.
The Bisho High School Principal could not be reached for comment.
