A FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD girl in Serenje District in Central Province has killed herself after allegedly differing with her parents over her flirting with boys.
The girl, a Grade seven pupil, threw herself in a river.
Central Province commissioner of police Standwell Lungu and Serenje District Commissioner Charles Mwelwa confirmed this yesterday.
Mr Lungu said the girl of Ngulwe Kabonde area in Serenje committed suicide between March 16 and 19, this year.
He said the girl threw herself in the river after getting angry with her parents who had reprimanded her for ‘playing’ with boys.
And Mr Mwelwa said police officers retrieved the girl’s body from the river on Wednesday after it was found floating by some people and had since been buried.
