Police in Rukungiri district is investigating circumstances under which a 43-year-old Primary School headteacher ended his life.
Kenneth Mushoborozi, a school headteacher of Kyamutariga Primary school in Kebisoni Sub County and a resident of Kihunga village, in Buyanja Sub County, allegedly committed suicide by hanging on Saturday night. His body was discovered by his son, Kenneth Ashoborora, in their shop in Nshungyezi trading centre on Sunday.
Ashoborora, who sleeps in the quarters of his father’s shop, says that he was surprised when he tried to wake up his father to open the shop as usual and got no response. He says that he alerted the neighbors and his elder brother Benjamin Mubangizi about the unusual incident, which prompted them to break the locks for the shop.
Mubangizi says that their father has been battling a mental illness which they suspect could have forced him to commit suicide.
