A teacher has left a school in shock after he committed suicide by hanging himself.

Shock gripped Mayori Secondary School in Mbeere south sub-county after the 28-year-old teacher locked himself in a room in the school and hanged self.

His body was found dangling from the rafters.

Area OCPD Ahmed Mohamed confirmed the incident.

The school principal said the incident has left students and teachers shocked.

The teacher did not leave a suicide note.

A close colleague, however, said that since the school reopened the teacher looked disturbed.

“He once talked of having domestic issues,” a colleague said.

A police source privy to investigations corroborated the claim.

“His close colleagues said he appeared stressed since schools opened last week. They said he had confessed to having domestic problems. We have commenced investigations and will even check his phone to see the people he talked to last,” a police source added.
