Teacher Found Hanging From Tree In Bulawayo
A 54-year-old teacher, Ntabiso Sibanda, from Magwegwe North suburb in Bulawayo committed suicide by hanging on Saturday afternoon.
The lifeless body of the teacher was discovered hanging from a tree branch by two boys who were looking for wood fuel near Magwegwe Sewerage Treatment plant.
The deceased’s brother, Bonisani Sibanda, said Ntabiso did not leave a suicide note and the family was still in the dark on the reason why he took his own life.
Police in Bulawayo revealed that investigations into Sibanda’s death were underway. Provincial police spokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube said:
We received a sudden death case where a 54-year-old man was found hanging from a tree in a bush in Magwegwe North suburb. The deceased is a teacher at Sabelo Primary school in Inyathi. He was found by two boys who were out looking for firewood. The boys informed elders before the matter was reported to the police who retrieved his body.
It’s unfortunate that a life has been lost. We strongly appeal to members of the public who might be going through personal issues to consult and seek counselling services to solve some of their problems. Ending one’s life is not a solution.
