Kiss FM presenter Chito Ndhlovu has for the first time opened up about being suicidal.
The multi-talented presenter has revealed that he contemplated suicide three times but all failed. In a lengthy message that has gone viral, leaving many touched, Chito wrote;
There is a time I tried to take my own life three times. I tried 3 times, I successfully failed. I was so deeply depressed, I didn’t want to hear about God, I didn’t want to hear a verse and it all didn’t make sense. At that point in my life God felt far from me.
I was in such a dark place I can’t even dare imagine going back there. Many of my friends had been ripped from my proximity by events but now I see it was God saving me.
In his touching message, Chito Ndhlovu also revealed that getting a job wasn”t easy. He said it took longer for him to get his current at Kiss FM.
Something else that brought tears to my eyes is; I was called every 3 months for 2 years since 2014 by the Programs Controller of Kiss FM to come and work for the organization. Every time we were about to seal the deal something stalled.
I remember praying with my whole heart for God to open this door and it seemed far from me…
The day my appointment letter was being printed, it was printed among over 100 termination letters. While I was getting a new job over 100 people had just lost a source of income. Man can’t do that, God is the only one who can do such a thing. And here I am living that answered prayer, the thing I prayed is where I am. It gets my spirit excited like I am here for the time.
