Nyahururu - A primary school teacher in Nyandarua County has committed suicide for allegedly not receiving his September salary.

The body of Patrick Irungu, 38, a teacher at Kirera primary school was found hanging inside his house by a relative  Wednesday morning under intriguing circumstances.

According to Irungu's father, Gathenya Irungu, the father of two had left for the bank Tuesday morning to check his September salary but he returned home upset after learning that it was yet to be deposited to his account.

“The following morning I called him several times but he was not answering. I got suspicious and went to his house only to find his lifeless body hanging on the roof,” said Gathenya.
