Alarm As Another Man Is Found Dead Inside His House In Kirinyaga

A 28-year-old man died by suicide in Mwea, Kirinyaga County on Monday. The man's body was found hanging in his home by children who were playing in the same compound. When the children raised the alarm, other residents in the area were shocked and confused as to why the man would take his own life, especially since he had reportedly been in good spirits during the festive season. The body has been taken to Kibugi funeral home for a post mortem examination.

In recent months, there have been a number of cases of men in Kirinyaga County taking their own lives. On December 31, for example, the body of a 59-year-old man was found hanging from a tree near a local rice farm. According to friends and family, the man had not explicitly said that he would commit suicide, but he had told them on multiple occasions that he would not see the New Year. One friend, Samuel Migwi Kariuki, said that he had thought the man's comments were a joke, but that the man had spent a lot of time near the tree where his body was eventually found, leading him to believe that the man had been looking for a good place to commit suicide.

The high number of men in Kirinyaga County taking their own lives has caused concern among residents. It is not clear at this time what the reasons are for these suicides, but it is important for people to be aware of the signs that someone may be considering suicide, and to offer help and support to anyone who may be struggling with mental health issues.
