A teacher from a  school in Bulawayo, Nkulumane suburb, Mandwandwe High School allegedly inhaled poisonous fumes at the science laboratory leading to his death on Monday.

The school has been forced to close its science laboratories following the tragedy.

The school faced accusations of not following recommended procedures and standards for chemical storage.

Science teacher Trust Ncube died on Monday after complaining of chest pains and reporting breathing difficulties.

A source at the school revealed that all science teachers were sick and several pupils are also showing the same symptoms.

It is alleged that when Ncube fell sick, he asked for some days off, complaining of chest pains but the headmaster, Litmus Moyo, refused to grant him sick leave.

The headmaster declined an interview, referring questions to the provincial education director Dan Moyo, who said an investigation has been launched.
