“Suicide tips anyone?” she asked

Kibra lawmaker Ken Okoth was among those who swiftly responded

Daily Nation columnist Rasna Warah on Tuesday posted a suicidal note on her official Twitter account but Kenyans came to her rescue, reminding her of how valuable she is.

“Suicide tips anyone?” she asked.

This attracted a myriad of comments from concerned citizens who offered help, including contacts of qualified experts.

Kibra lawmaker Ken Okoth was among those who swiftly responded by saying: “Please don't think of it. Don't do it.

“You mean so much to so many of us.”

Carol Wambui added: “Rasna, I am so so sorry you're hurting like this. I'm truly sorry it feels so bleak. You don't have to walk this journey alone, please reach out to Befrienders Kenya.

“They're a phone call away on +254722178177. Thinking of you.”

Paul Achar said: “Please Don’t. Anyone who has @RasnaWarah on speed dial please get in touch with her NOW!!!”

Wanjeri Nderu echoed similar sentiments noting: #AmKenyan Rasna you are precious to many. Fight back. You can.

“It will be well. Sending you all the love and laughter you give to those who have been lucky to know you. @ItsGeorgeKegoro @kwamchetsi.”
