A former Zimbabwean boxer, living in London, committed suicide for fear of being deported back to his home country after his documents were found to be incomplete.
According to the details provided, the 42-year-old former boxer, identified as Bhekitshe Moyo, had been living in London for the past 15 years, but he had been recently notified that he would have to leave the country.
Moyo did not take well to the news and he made it known on social media and a letter written to the UK immigration office, that he would end his life.
Moyo’s family got concerned over his wellbeing when he posted a farewell message on his Facebook account; “I shed a tear as I write this because I will not be there when a new and just work is built. I have to sleep now. I love you all. Now be good to one another. Peace.”
The next morning, Moyo was found dead near Mitchman Common on early Friday morning.
After discovering his body, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement that the body of a man who had been reported missing a day earlier, had been found at 00:40 hrs on Tuesday. The death was not being treated as suspicious since the victim had revealed his plans to kill himself.
A letter he apparently wrote for the UK immigration office went viral on Facebook wherein he informed them about his decision to end his life.
“When I am gone, could you please use a bit of the taxes that I have paid over the years, if that would not make me a scrounger, to cremate my body and release the ashes somewhere in the wild. Maybe I will have peace in death,” he wrote.
