A Gwanda teacher on the run from cops has hanged himself. Bhekimuzi Sibanda, who was head of department of sports at Ntepe High School, hanged himself from a tree after getting wind that he was being investigated by the police for s0domy.

Matabeleland South police spokesperson Inspector Philisani Ndebele confirmed Sibanda’s death. “I confirm that a teacher at Ntepe High School Bhekimuzi Sibanda killed himself by hanging on Tuesday. He did not leave a suicide note and his body was conveyed to Gwanda Provincial Hospital mortuary,” said Insp Ndebele.A source told the Chronicle that Sibanda was restless in the morning on the day he took his own life.

“We heard that he was wanted by the police for a  case of sodomy he committed. On the day he killed himself, he heard that the police were looking for him and evaded them before he killed himself,” said the source.

The source said Sibanda committed the sodomy some time ago and a report was made to the police who started looking for him.“He was recently in South Africa where he came back living a lavish life. His behaviour had changed.

We later heard that he committed an offence and when police were looking for him that’s when he sneaked away and hanged himself,” the source said.
