A man who killed himself yesterday morning left a suicide note saying he did not feel loved by his parents.
Police Commander Hassan Barua said the man's body was found by Kaptembwa residents.
Mr Barua said police officers found the note suspected to have been written by the man and a bottle of poison.
"It is suspected that the man ingested the poison and later decided to hang himself on a tree in the estate," said the police boss.
Mr Barua said that in the suicide note, the man, whose identity was not immediately established, accused his parents of not loving him.
“I know my departure will not affect you in any way for I was always a nuisance child in the home. I was always an outcast. I was not loved and supported,” read the note.
He also cited frustrations, saying life was meaningless.
“I spent the last days of my life seeking to understand the meaning of life but I finally came to understand that life was meaningless.”
The body was taken to a mortuary to await identification and a postmortem.
