a Concordia College’s head of language and sports departments bade farewell to his learners last Friday by a chilling message before committing suicide in his Khomasdal house.
Bradely Izaks’ farewell message was: “Due Monday. Start now. Silent method. Welcome to Hell.”
NamPol Public Relations Officer Warrant Officer, Kauna Shikwambi confirmed the incident.
“I can confirm that the incident occurred but I do not have the incident report in my possession right now,” she said.
Although fellow teachers said they were not sure whether the message left on the board was written by Izaks, the last phrase ‘welcome to hell’ has always been his slogan.
“We are not sure whether everything that was written on the board was all written by the late teacher as the class was left unattended.
“We are yet to confirm whether it was the teacher or if a learner added the rest of that message. All we know is that, ‘Welcome to Hell’ was always been his catch phrase,” said Helvi Eliakim, a fellow teacher and friend of the late Izaks.
Efforts to contact Concordia College Principal, Mr Katjariua proved futile as his phone was off yesterday, however, V-Metro can confirm that Izaks will be buried in Rehoboth this week.
Police in Rehoboth confirmed that Izaks’ own mother had opened a case of violence against the late teacher recently, after he had illegally taken possession of his father’s firearm, a fortnight ago.
“They have been having problems since his father died. The father’s will is not finalised yet and there had been bad blood between the mother and Bradely,” said a Rehoboth neighbour.
Rehoboth police also confirmed that they were investigating whether another cause for the suicide could have been Bradely’s own bedroom dilemma.
“We are informed that he used to assault his wife every week whenever he came home drunk. We understand the wife ended up getting another partner and days before the suicide, she had hinted to the deceased that she would be leaving him for another man who is less violent.
There were a lot of things that had been happening around this young man’s life that we are taking into consideration,” said a Rehoboth police officer.
