A primary school teacher at Tafadzwa School in Macheke here has shot his head dead before turning the gun to himself.

 It was not clear when, and how the teacher had acquired the gun.

The headmaster and the teacher were always at loggerheads even when the teacher was right.

The head had asked the teacher to work over the holidays when the teacher wanted to be free. An argument ensued then the head drafted an instrument to punish the teacher.

This did not go down well prompting the teacher to feel humiliated. He left a letter explaining and quoting incidents they had quarreled.

This was the 16th time in just one term. The head is said to be the autocratic type. No eye witness as this happened while the school was deserted.

The bodies have been removed by the police but it’s a sad mishap.

The names of the 2 have been withheld for professional reasons. The DSI has not been reached yet. A black cloud hangs over the school. incident witness
