Duncan Kiveli Wavinya, 27, from Mwala, Machakos County dived into the Indian Ocean to end his life after frustrations from the effects of Covid-19 in October last year. His family were notified last week that the body was of their son who they thought would come back alive.
Speaking to Nation Media, Joyce Wavinya, the mother of Duncan, revealed that before his disappearance he had sent two messages to her before his phone went off. The messages showed a frustrated figure who didn't know what the future holds for him.
“Hi family, I will need some time alone to contemplate how far I have come and what the future holds for me. It may take a while but then, please do not look for me or even worry over my disappearance for you will not find me until am ready to come back,” one of the messages read as quoted by the media house.
In his second message, he assured the family not to worry about his whereabouts since he is well and the family he had left at home was in his heart, thoughts and prayers.
His mother narrates that she has been looking at the two texts for nine months non-stop before a phone call on June 17th made her heart sunk.it was police investigator Deborah Karimi who informed her that the body that was found floating on the Indian Ocean was of her beloved son.
The family is yet to come to terms with the death as they are currently preparing to give him a befitting send-off in his parent's homestead.
