Yesterday the body of a teacher whose wife was caught red handed having sex with a politician from Baringo Central District was found dangling from a tree.
The politician – Amos Kandie was later killed by an angry mob.
According to residents, the teacher was depressed and never talked to people since the incident occurred and this may be the reason behind the suicide. He could not bear the fact that his wife had been cheating on him with the politician.
Kandie was the only politician who ever attempted to overthrow former President Moi at Parliamentary level in the year 1992 and 1997 general elections; he was also going for a Senate seat in the region this coming elections.
Baringo police boss Charles Musewe confirmed the incident and said that the teacher’s son and three other people are still in custody over the killing of Kandie. A woman who was found with Kandie’s phone is also in custody and will be arraigned in court.
Musewe further added that they are investigating the teacher’s death and have been questioning his wife and other people. They have not yet ruled out foul play since no one had reported him missing till his body was found.
The teacher’s decomposing body was taken to Kabarnet District Hospital mortuary where a post mortem is being conducted.
