Twenty-year-old Savita Sursattie also ingested “gramoxone” Sunday night. She was rushed to the hospital by relatives. Relatives said they are unsure why Savita, called Bindu, would want to end her life. Sursattie was recently married and has since been separated.

The female ward at the Suddie Hospital was packed to the extreme as persons were visiting the patients. Some of the relatives were seen crying as they are still baffled as to the reason for these individuals to have made such a drastic  move to kill themselves.



Meanwhile, two separate families on the Essequibo Coast are mourning the death of their loved ones as they tragically consumed poisonous substances separately. Dead are 23-year-old Akel Shurland of Adventure and 27-year-old Kaimwattie Persaud of Anna Regina.

  1. The parents needs to sit with their kids and to have a good relationship. They need to look for signs of being depressed, new signs of behavior. To check their kids at school. At most times the kids are having problems at school and it leads to a boy etc. If a parent sees their child who is between 12-14 years and is on the FB media they need to check to see what they are doing

  2. DK what is wrong with you ppl. Why is the government to be blame cuz a 12 year old have BF problem or a big man crash his car or a big woman have a fight with her husband. Stop blaming ppl for our down fall. Why you want the government help . Why cant the church and special groups also help. To those people who try commiting suicide and survive please think of why God gave you a second chance. No one is worth giving up your life for. God has giving you a special gift, make use of it. If something is bothering you talk to someone. There are a lot of people who are handicap would love to trade places with you. Blind ppl who have never seen light before, ppl in wheel chair who never walked before, and lots of other handicap ppl. So please don’t let stuff like this cross your mind. Cherish this gift God has given you and don’t hurt the people who love you.

  3. Honestly I think some of them just seeking attention and sympathy. We can’t blame the government for everything. The government may put things in place but would these same suicidal people have taken advice given or counselling given.
    Secondly some of us need to turn to the Lord and pray.

  4. Agreed!! Programs, counseling (there’s no shame in counseling!!!!), Empowerment! Female Empowerment!! The women need to learn and educate themselves to be strong, high women!.

    At 12 you’re frustrated with life after enduring severe problem with boyfriend… oh come onnnnn. You know what I was doing at 12???? I was playing in the street and in my books. These ppl need Jesus! Stupes.

    At 22….. she attempted to end her life after her brother asked her to stop ‘texting’ and assist with the household chores. Again Am not sure if to show pity here. Most of these are females with 1 male, obviously that should tell the community something!! Heated argument with their husband! Ppl just need to stop marry their children so young.

  5. Just more pathetic commentary from the village buffoon! It is useless to even encourage you to go educate yourself because you are obviously a coconut-head with zero capability to learn anything. People with education and class do not take other peoples’ grief and distress and use them to make ignorant, baseless political statements.

  6. The churches and elders need to hold evening meetings and educational programmes to deal with this very sad problem. We need to pray for these people and their families!

  7. Long live the PNC/AFC government. How come nobody is talking nothing about the government or them a hide in shame under them bed.
