    “I have not been myself since I was threatened via SMS by (name withheld) who said killing me would not be a big deal. She will explain why she wants me dead,” he wrote.

    The deceased claimed that his life had taken a turn for the worst, revealing that two conmen swindled him Ksh700,000.

    He further listed a father and three sons whom he claimed owed him Ksh800,000 for a piece of land he sold them. The English Literature teacher claimed that there was only one way to free himself.

    “I have lived a life of humiliation and desperation and now I leave in peace. My wife has other instructions on my burial,” the handwritten note read in part.

    The deceased’s body was successfully retrieved from the water reservoir by a team of divers and taken to the mortuary.

    Police officers launched an investigation into his death and the claims made in the suicide note with a conclusive report expected once post-mortem results are out.

    Meanwhile, residents demanded that the well be fenced or permanently closed from the public as it had claimed several lives since its establishment.

    A section of Kenyans including colleagues and former students eulogized him as a soft-spoken man and a great teacher who had a great impact on their lives.
