Moraa was coming back from the Kisii bus terminus where she runs a small business.

Both the woman and the man were married to other people.

Kisii County Police Coordinator Benard Nguli told media his officers were investigating the matter

“We want to establish why the deceased took such action."

Nguli urged residents to remain calm.

“We have had a number of suicide cases in the area and a few are related to family issues. We must understand that there are ways of solving conflicts without killing yourself," he said.
