BY STAFF REPORTER
A 39 year old man of Musenga suburb in Kasama has committed suicide by hanging himself using a mosquito net.
Alex Musonda hanged himself by the neck in his rented house following a quarrel with his landlord over unpaid two-month rentals amounting to K300.
Musenga vice Headman, Fred Chama says Mr. Musonda is believed to have committed suicide after his landlord only identified as Bana Junior allegedly locked him in the house together with his 10 year daughter on grounds that he will only be released after he pays his rentals.
Mr. Chama said the body of Musonda was discovered by the said owner of the house around 01:00 hours today when she went to pursue for her rentals.
He said the village committee and residents are dismayed at the death of Mr. Musonda as a result of what he called a small amount of money which he said the matter could have been resolved amicably.
By press time, the owner of the house was reported to have been picked up by the police.
