A South African girl left her followers on social media devastated after she took her life and shared the act with those that follow her.
In a video that has since gone viral, the young lady recorded herself crying while taking yoghurt that has been mixed with rat poison. She even captioned the video ‘bye iyo bonana’ which closely translates to ‘Goodbye, see you soon’.
Unfortunately, it has been revealed that she died minutes after that.

Here’s how social media reacted:
“Used to think that suicide that’s documented is attention seeking. However, when I think about it deeply, perhaps she wanted to be found by her loved ones, saved and taken to hospital or so before the poison spreads in her. She might have had that little hope in her,” a tweep wrote.
“Our kids are going through the most they are graduates but still unemployed. They feel empty and useless. Some have only matric, they can’t further their studies due to financial difficulties. Parents let’s support our kids, show them love. Never ever neglect your children,” another wrote.
“Life was better when it was just Mxit and BBM. Not this thing zamaBaddies, insta ect… People are now putting a lot of pressure on themselves because of the internet,” said another person.
