A 24-YEAR-OLD Beatrice man allegedly hanged himself in his ex-wife’s yard after a failed reconciliation last month.
Police sources said Thomas Layelo of Mhonderwa Farm could not take his former wife, Bridget Limited’s decision of not rekindling their union, before his body was found hanging from a tree in the latter’s yard on September 19 this year.
Although Mashonaland East deputy provincial police spokesperson, Assistant Inspector Tendai Mwanza was unreachable for comment, sources said the incident occurred at Brenchine A Farm Marirangwe, Beatrice, where Layelo’s former wife stayed.
It is alleged that Layelo left Limited’s home in a huff after she spurned her reconciliation moves and was later found hanging from a tree in her yard.
Officers from Marirangwe Police Base attended the scene and took the body to Chitungwiza Hospital Mortuary for a post mortem.
