Teacher Dies Under Mysterious Circumstances in Bondo, Siaya County

Police Car of Kenya

Today the nation wakes up to yet another sad story of a teacher’s death under unclear circumstances.

Residents of Bondo constituency in Siaya County are astonished with the news of a head teacher was found dead inside his house. The discovery was made by neighbors who, alarmed by a foul smell emanating from the house in the early hours of Sunday morning, called the police to investigate.

Lucas Onyango, a teacher, was found dead on a couch in his house. The Bondo sub-county police boss confirmed the incident, stating that the circumstances are under police investigation. Initial reports from three officers who responded to the scene suggested no signs of struggle or commotion inside the deceased’s house, leading authorities to consider the possibility of suicide.

The deceased is said to have been living alone before his death. He died with unmarked KCSE papers by his side, making his death even more mystic.

The body of the late Onyango has been transferred to the hospital as investigations into the matter continues.

The unfortunate death of the teacher comes a day after the death of another teacher during the marking of KCPE exams at St. George’s High School in Nairobi.

Another person, a boda boda rider aged 23, was also found dead in Bondo area under similar circumstances.

As the community is left wondering what might have happened, another teach slips through our social fabric. And the question is, are teachers safe anymore? Is it stress, anxiety, frustration, or just a natural cause? Questions that need answers; but from who?
