He was found hanging on a tree branch in the near bush at Chikurubi Prison. The reasons for committing suicide is not yet known, but some family members say he had told them earlier on that he wanted to commit suicide.
His family members said earlier that day, he threatened committing suicide when he took a small piece of wire at their home wanting to hang himself in the house.
His family members said when he left the house to commit suicide, they could not restrain him as he had changed and became uncontrollable.
