“I was on the verge of committing suicide” – Dumi Mkokstad opens up on his struggle with depression



Dumi Mkokstad recently took to his social media to open up about his struggle with depression.


This came after he was dragged for a tweet that he made under Riky Rick’s hashtag, #RIKYRICK-I-UNDERSTAND.

In a now-deleted tweet, Dumi tweeted that “suicide isn’t the solution, Christ is.”

However, this did not sit well with some of the Twitter users, and here are a few reactions.

In his defense, Dumi said he was simply sharing with those who may be going through depression that Christ may help them because he helped him too.
He added that it would be “extremely stupid and insensitive” of him to criticize those who have passed on.
“Bcos I have been through depression I wrote tweets yesterday with the #RIKYRICK_I_UNDERSTAND because I have been there and I was on the verge of committing suicide myself. Therefore I can never judge anyone who ends up taking their lives because I know exactly what they’re facing,” he tweeted.

He added, “Maybe let’s start here Iv been through depression myself and would never Not understand anyone’s reaction to it. People deal with situations differently and I will never judge anyone who may go through that.”
