16-year-old girl takes own life after being forced to shave her hair as punishment

According to reports, a teacher urged a 16-year-old pupil at Langalanga Secondary School in Nakuru, Kenya, to shave her head before she committed herself.

She apparently unbraided her hair on the last day of the second term in mid-September, for which she was supposedly instructed to shave it off.

The adolescent known as Shamamcy Wanjiru committed suicide on September 28, 2022, at her Kaloleni, California, home.

Her family member informed the journalists;

“She told me when she got home on Tuesday that their class instructor had requested that she come with her parents. 

When we arrived at school on Wednesday, the instructor informed us that she must shave her hair. 

She became really enraged over it.”

The family claims that before hanging herself, Wanjiru wrote the instructor a letter of apologies.
