A nurse practising at Netcare Hospital in Pretoria, South Africa, identified as Gladys Tshabalala has reportedly taken her own life after she bumped into a number of her nude photos on the most popular social media site, Facebook.
According to reports, the deceased had meant to send her nude pictures to her husband-to-be before her phone was stolen. Her stolen phone landed into the ‘wrong hands’ and in three days her nude pictures were on the ‘every corner of Mzansi’s internet’, Mzansi is a city in South Africa.
According to her close friend who commented on condition of anonymity, she decided to take the drastic decision because her boyfriend had reversed all marriage plans following the leakage of her bedroom photos without her consent.
The friend of the deceased said, “At first I thought she was joking when she told me that she couldn’t live and face her friends and relatives after what transpired and she further told me that she would rather die because her life had suddenly flipped inside out since she was also about to lose her job because of the scandal”.
The South African Police Service boss has urged members of the public to seek counselling when they go through tough situations instead of making their lives shorter by taking such drastic yet unnecessary decisions.
