A 34-year-old teacher from Kathamboni Secondary School committed suicide in Makueni.
The body of Patrick Tindi was found dangling from a tree, a few metres from the school compound.
The mathematics and business studies teacher had called his brother prior to the suicide and informed him of plans to take his life.
The brother in turn called the school principal who mobilised other teaching staff to look for the deceased only to find his body hanging from a tree in a thicket near the school.
The teacher left behind a suicide note thanking his parents and wife with whom they had a son.
