A man reportedly aged 24, ended his life after allegedly wishing himself rest in peace message on social media.
The deceased, whom police got to identify as Denis Yego from the Nandi County, hanged himself not so long after he had posted the RIP messages on his Facebook account.
On Monday evening, the deceased posted, "Rest in peace to me." Shortly after, he continued in another post, "kama kuna mtu ananidai kam before midday tomorrow morning," loosely translated as, "if I owe you any money, then come tomorrow morning before midday."
The late Yego reportedly attempted to murder his wife before killing himself. He stabbed her several times, though she escaped death and is now fighting for her life at Kapsabet referral Hospital.
MCA for Kabiyet Mr. Walter Teno recalled how the deceased, together with his wife, had paid him a visit earlier in the fateful day, seeking counseling over their marital indifferences.
"He came to my office with his wife. They were having issues that they wanted me to help them solve. The wife had to run away from their home. We talked, and they agreed to go and live together," recalled Hon. Walter.
Police Commander for Nandi Mr. Samuel Ole Kine called upon youths to seek help from religious leaders and other professionals, instead of committing suicide.
He added that the deceased left no suicide note when his corpse was discovered on Tuesday.
