Slain Headteacher Who Was Forcefully Poisoned Had Been Complaining Of Harsh Working Environment

A male teacher stationed at a local primary school in Machakos County was on Monday found dead in Matungulu.

The headteacher’s body was retrieved from his rented house in the Kantafu area along Nairobi – Kangundo road.

Edward Kupere Kasuku who was the head teacher of Kantafu primary school, was found dead in his house after he failed to turn up for duty.

Police who visited the scene suspected that the headteacher had committed suicide.

According to reports, Edward is said to have been waylaid by unknown assailants who forcefully poisoned him in his house where he lived alone leaving him to succumb.

In a tearful burial, Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) executive secretary, Elly Korinko, said the headteacher was delocalized for two and half years and had been complaining of the harsh unfriendly working environment in vain.

Korinko said that delocalization of teachers has led to increased marriage breakups and conflicts leading to low morale among teachers.

Locals urged detectives to expedite investigations into the murder of the headteacher so that the culprits are brought to book.
