He said the body had decayed so badly that it could not be taken to a mortuary. Jorowe said the incident was reported on Monday after a boy saw the body hanging from a tree as he was looking for goats."After receiving the report, we rushed to the scene where we found a man aged between 40 and 45 years hanging from a tree. He used a wire to kill himself," he said. He said that after consulting a doctor at the scene as well as the village kgosi, his officers and the district commissioner decided to bury the body.

"There was nothing that could be done besides to bury him right at the spot because the body was badly decomposed. The smell was not healthy for human beings," he said.Jorowe said investigations are underway to locate the family of the deceased. He called on the public to report to Tutume police if they have missing relatives.

"Suicide cases in Tutume and neighbouring villages are a concern. We usually go around educating the public at Kgotla meetings about the dangers of not seeking help when you have problems," he said.He said there is a better way to deal with problems such as seeking help from a third party. "We tell people to talk to community leaders, church leaders and the police as opposed to taking the law into their hands," he said. He said males are more suicidal than females because they do not like to seek help when they have problems.
