Then, the victim’s mother  rebuked him for fighting which made him unhappy and out of anger walked out of the yard on pretext  that he was  going  to the farm to visit his father while not mentioning the intentions of taking his life.

The  following day around 05:30 hours, a member of the public found him  hanging to a tree within his father’s farm.

The passersby then alerted the family members who later  went and identified him and the matter was then reported to the police.

The police visited the scene and reportedly advised the family to bury the body .
