Valentine died for love, Romeo also died for love, Jack in titanic died for love, Samson in the Bible died for love, Greek heroes Hercules and Archilles died for love, and so did the Mukore High School librarian Taurai Sibanda who took his life after wife filed divorce papers at the courts recently.
Sibanda drank pesticide chemical after realising that his wife had filed divorce papers at the courts, and more so, the wife who is a teacher at Chada Primary School, was already in a relationship with another man.
The late Sibanda’s close friend who spoke on conditions of anonymity said the deceased was having a lot of problems in his marriage but he never expected that he would go to the extent of committing suicide.
“Sibanda had a lot of social problems particularly the divorce case with his wife. Things got worse when he realized that his wife was already seeing someone else while they were still in the divorce process.
“I don’t know what led to the filing of the divorce case but all I know is that Sibanda was hoping that things would get better. He wanted to work things out with his wife but unfortunately he decided to take his own life after succumbing to immense stress,” he said.
The incident happened barely two weeks after two Mukore high school teachers perished in an accident which happened along Mutare –Masvingo Highway.
