26-year-old Man Commits Suicide After His Mother Refused To Give Him Money To Buy Bhang.

A sombre mood has engulfed the residents of Kagio town after a 26-year-old man committed suicide under unclear circumstances.

Peter Mwangi killed himself after his mother refused to give him money to buy bhang.

On the previous night, a brief disagreement ensued between Mwangi and his mother before he decided to end his life.

His mother, Teresiah Wanjiru, said that his son asked for money to buy bhang, which she refused because she knows it is an illegal substance in the country.

The following morning, Wanjiru found the door into his room locked from inside. She raised alerted neighbours who rushed to the scene and broke the door. His body was dangling from the roof of the house.

Police visited the scene and moved to body to the local morgue pending postmortem.

The skyrocketing drug abuse, especially bhang and chang’aa has been pointed as the main catalyst of the alarming high and steady rise in the numbers of suicidal cases in the country.
