A man committed suicide outside his in-laws’ home in Kisumu reportedly after his marriage failed to work.
Omondi left a suicide note in his house in Kibos, and walked to his in-laws’ place, about ten kilometres away, where he took his life.
Ronald Omondi, 27, hanged himself using a plastic rope at Wathorego village on Sunday night.
Omondi’s younger brother, Maurice Oyugi, told The Standard the deceased had catered for his wife’s secondary fees. “He became bitter when the woman left despite all he had done for her,” said Oyugi. ?
On Sunday evening, he called his mother to say that he was taking his life.
“We are devastated. We never thought he would do this,” said Oyugi. The body was removed to the Nyanza Provincial Hospital mortuary.
An elder in the area, Walter Mumbo, said cleansing would have to be done since it was a taboo to commit suicide.?
