Teacher Commits Suicide After Being Accused Of Stealing School Laptops

A teacher at Migiro Primary School in Bondo and father of ten has taken his own life after being accused by two colleagues of stealing two laptops that belong to government.
Elkana Owino Omondi was found by residents of Nango Trading Center dangling on the roof of his rented house in the trading center.
The residents and Elkana's colleagues stared at the body in shock and were left astonished after reading the two suicide notes in which he accused two of his colleagues at Migiro Primary School of wrongfully implicating him.
The second suicide note left by Elkana Owino Omondi suggested the reason why he had decided to take his own life. He wrote that he had no means or ways to buy the laptops he had been accused of stealing.
He wondered in writing why the school's administration expected him to buy and replace something he had not stolen.
Elkana Owino Omondi vowed that the two colleagues behind his troubles will live to regret their actions.
Nyang'oma assistant commissioner Samson Akatch ruled out any foul play or murder after reading the suicide notes left by the deceased. He said that he suspected the tribulations penned down by the deceased tutor indicates he must have been undergoing depression.
The body is lying within the walls of Bondo Hospital mortuary.
This case brings to light the problems that teachers go through in their day to day routines in school. Just recently a teacher lost his life in Nakuru County after his students smashed his head to death. The students claimed that the teacher had confiscated their phone.
The Kenya National Union of Teachers has demanded that the government looks into the well being of teachers or face demonstrations.
The Secretary General of the union noted that teachers undergo violence from students, parents and guardians and some have mental issues due to pressure from the Teachers Service Commission, school administrations and other numerous reasons.
