Shock As 38-Year-Old Musician And Pastor Films Himself Committing Suicide (Watch Video)

In a shocking act of suicide, a 38-year old Zimbabwean gospel musician and church pastor took his life while filming himself as he did the act. According to the video the cause of Richard Nhika’s suicide was a conflict he had with his girlfriend, whom he refers to as Nomatter.
Nhika filmed himself near a road, saying: “This is where I am seated, just close to the road… I think it’s about 15 to 20 metres so take care.” In the video Richard says:
“I will always love you No matter, which is why when I saw you I never insulted you or said anything bad. I have decided to die next to this tree so that everyone can see, this is real poison you can even see for yourself.”
The footage ends after he has drunk the poison. The state-run Chronicle and H-Metro papers reported earlier this week that Nhika later died in Harare’s Parirenyatwa hospital. It is not clear who posted the clip online.
The video has elicited sadness and shock in Zimbabwe, where, as elsewhere in the world, there are worries of copycat attempts.
