Police are investigating a case in which a 65 year old male from Kanye committed suicide at the Sir Ketumile Masire Teaching Hospital yesterday.
Gaborone Central Police Station commander Supritendent, Mothusi Phadi confirmed to this publication that yesterday at around 07:20, a patient at Sir Ketumile Masire Teaching hospital jumped out through one of the second floor building windows. The patient sustained serious injuries and later died.
The 65 year old is said to have been admitted at the hospital on the 7th of January 2021 from Kanye due to ill health.
When quizzed on what could have led to the unfortunate incident, this is what Supritendent Phadi had to say, “investigations are still ongoing, and as of now we cannot point to anything as the cause or what might have driven the patient to committing suicide. The patient did not leave any message behind so as to inform us or give his family clarity on his actions.”
Phadi further explained that, “It is important that people know the importance of life and that if they have any kind of problems they should seek help or counselling.”
