27 Years Old Man Attempts Suicide After Stubbing a KCSE candidate to Death

A form-four student has been reported dead after she was stubbed by a man under unclear circumstances in Kavasya, Kitui county. The area chief, Maluki Mumo, while confirming the incident, said that the girl died after she was stubbed severally.


According the witnesses, the 27-year-old man attempted suicide shortly after the incident by stubbing himself with the same knife. He was rescued by the neighbors and is receiving treatment at the Kitui County referral hospital. The incident has left many shocked with speculations on what might have caused the tragic incident.


This happens when the rates of murder and suicides have increased tremendously in the recent past. Psychologists have linked the high cold blood murder and suicide rates to social and economic effects of the Corona Virus lockdowns. Experts have warned that the financial implications of lockdowns may not be worse than the mental and social affects. Many people are depressed because of loss of income and are more vulnerable to murder, suicide, assault and domestic violence.
