POLICE at Tulagi in Central Province is investigating into the alleged suicide of a woman at the Dota Community High School on Small Gela Island on 26 November 2018.
PPC Maelasi says, “The woman who is from Makira and Gela, is married with two children and was residing at the School with her husband who is a teacher at Dota Community High School.”
Inspector Maelasi explains: “Police in Tulagi were informed when officers attended to the scene of the incident on Monday 26 November 2018. The husband of the deceased left her and their children at about 9 am to teach at the School.
He says, “With the help of other teachers and students, the husband tried to take his wife to the hospital at Tulagi but she died on the way.”
“We are still investigating the incident so at this stage we cannot say what led the woman to harm herself but just want to remind our good people of Central Province that there is nothing more valuable than life. My advice is that if you have any personal problems seek help immediately. There’s always someone within our communities that is willing to assist you. Taking one’s own life will have a lasting effect especially on the children,” says PPC Maelasi.
