Form 3 Student Commits Suicide After Being Dumped By Girlfriend

'Love is a beautiful thing created by God...' and as we all know, 'Love is sweet and bitter at the same time.'

I can say love is sweet when its mutual and real. Making each other happy amidst the challenges along the way but still remaining together can make one feel on top of the world. But when you're in such a situation and your partner decides to back out could have very harsh consequences on you especially depression. When you're depressed, you have a lot going on in your mind trying to find how best you can solve it, but when misguided, you can do the unthinkable.

That is the case of 18-year-old Kelvin Omondi, a form 3 student at Alara Secondary School in Ndhiwa, Homabay County. He committed suicide after his Form 3 girlfriend in a neighbouring school broke up with him.

Omondi hang himself using a sisal rope in his room on Wednesday even after disagreement with the girlfriend. Sources indicate that he had just received a call from the girlfriend to call off the relationship. After a failed attempt to convince her otherwise is when he took his own life after the call.

According to the area Chief Grace Oguta, the mother of the girl had totally been against the love affair therefore compelling his daughter to walk out of the relationship.

News have it the two who are neighbours have been in the affair since they were in primary school and the boy got devastated after being dumped.

This is not the first case of deaths as a result of breakups amongst school going children. Some time back, a form 2 boy was stabbed vy another boy over a girl they were both interested in and many other scenarios to refer to.

These cases have been on the rise since students were forced to stay home following the Covid-19 pandemic.
