Yesterday, there were rumours of an SRC aspirant threatening to commit suicide. He took to his WhatsApp status to let his intentions be known. The aspirant, Schandorf, was trolled heavily on campus after losing the elections held on Monday.
The butt of most jokes bordered on him deferring his course just to vie for elections again after losing in last year’s elections.
He clearly stated the Elections was the least of reasons he had for thinking to take his life but hinted at the fact that it is a part of the sequence of events that has led to him being at this point.
He also mentioned that he did not intend to see the 26th April.
He also anticipated the talk that will circulate surrounding his decision to take his life:
It’s 27th April now and we know for a fact that Schandorf has not taken his life. We can only speculate that friends and family managed to get through to him and we hope and pray that he gets the help he needs.
