Award winning DJ and Amapiano vocalist Lady Du has pleaded with shops to stop selling poison to children. Her plea comes shortly after another case of suicide was reported at one of the schools in the east of Johannesburg, Tsakane Secondary School.

On Friday last week, a male general worker from the same school reportedly committed suicide by consuming poison at home.
Tagging Gauteng Premier Panyaza Lesufi, the singer said more awareness of mental health in schools is needed.
