A 24 year-old man has committed suicide by hanging after his employer sacked him as security guard in Blantyre.
According to Chileka police publicist Peter Mchiza, the deceased has been identified as Fisher Wilfred who was working as a security guard at one of the bottle stores in Ndirande.
Mchiza said it is reported that Wilfred on Saturday, September 26 went to his home in Chileka depressed following being sacked out at his work place on unknown reasons.
Following the development, on September 27, Wilfred was found hanging in a nearby mango tree and his body was discovered by some women who were fetching water from the borehole.
The matter was reported to Pyerepyere Police Unit where police officers together with medical personnel from Chileka Health Centre visited the scene and it was established that the deceased died of suffocation following strangulation.
