The man (26, name withheld) of Gohoto Village under Chief Katerere in Ruwangwe, Nyanga North, committed the suicide on November 6.
It is said that on November 5, the family members of the now-deceased met and discussed the matter as they accused him of impregnating his 14-year-old sister.

They went to the mountain and found him hanging on a baobab tree.
