A teenage girl was rushed to a hospital in critical condition after drinking a poisonous substance because she was angry with her mother, according to police in Durban.

Police said that the mother found her 17-year-old daughter unconscious in her bed after she tried to kill herself because she was told to stay away from her 39-year-old Blesser.

Zodwa Mthembu is being treated at Wentworth hospital, where she is said to be in a critical condition.

The mother told investigators that about a week ago, she realized that her daughter was spending time with a man old enough to be her father.

When the mother found out that the man was 39 years old, she banned her daughter from seeing him again, fearing that she might get pregnant or worse HIV.

On Monday morning, the mother went to her daughter’s bedroom to wake her up, but she found her unconscious in bed with a bottle of poison next to her.
