Kenyan police officers in Makueni County are investigating two deaths after a male teacher and a high school girl hung themselves to death in separate incidents.
In the first incident, 38-year-old Muema Kitema, who was a primary school teacher is reported to have committed suicide by hanging himself with a rope on a cypress tree.
According to Musalala Assistant Chief, Cecilia Waithera, the teacher did not leave behind a suicide note.
In her report, Waithera said that the Muthethe Primary School teacher may have had domestic issues that pushed to commit suicide.
His body was taken to Nunguni Level 4 Mortuary awaiting a postmortem.
In the second incident reported in the same sub-county, Nunguni, a 16-year-old girl committed suicide by hanging herself on the roof of a cattle shed.
The Form One student at Mwaani Secondary School is said to have taken drastic action after quarreling with her mother over a mobile phone.
According to Mwatiku Sub-Location Assistant Chief, Roseline Matata, the quarrel arose after the mother demanded to know who had bought the girl the mobile phone she was using.
Matata said that the girlâ€™s body was taken to Kilungu Level 4 Sub-County Hospital mortuary awaiting a postmortem.
