A WOMAN yesterday afternoon discovered the lifeless body of her 40-year-old husband, Silvanus Joseph, hanging from a tree at Uuthimawomeya village in the Ogongo constituency of Omusati Region.
Confirming the incident, Omusati Regional Commander Commissioner Titus Shikongo, said the body was discovered hanging from a mopane tree with a piece of cloth around his neck.
“It is alleged that the deceased was last seen in the morning at around 07h00 when he left the house for work in the same village where they are doing construction at another house, but he could not be reached afterwards,” said Shikongo.
Shikongo added that when the deceased was nowhere to be found, the employer called his wife, who then retraced his footstep in an attempt to find him.
Instead, she found him hanging in a suicide where foul play is not suspected.
No suicide note was left and the reasons for taking his life remain unknown.
His body was transported to the Okahao police mortuary for postmortem and police investigations continue.
