Road Accident

Officer Attached at office of DPP commits suicide hours after a night party, leaves suicide note

Many people are currently battling with mental issues, that is why there are many attempts of trying to kill others and also trying to commit suicide.

A State counsel attached to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in Kitui County who took his own life yesterday spent the last hours of his life partying with friends.

Hours before Kevin Gesire, 34, was found dead in his apartment, he had been involved in a road accident where his car, a BMW 116, rammed into guard rails on his way home after a night out with his friends.

It is not clear whether the crash was an attempt on his own life, but the prosecutor did not turn up for work at the Kitui law courts yesterday morning. His lifeless body was then discovered in his house.

His colleagues and friends were shocked to learn of his death by suicide moments after police broke into his house and found his body dangling from the bathroom window. His neighbours had alerted the police.

Mr Gesire had not shown any signs of depression but had left a suicide note that suggested he was struggling in life, said his senior colleague Assistant Director of Public Prosecutions Bonnie Okemwa.

“He left a suicide note that said he was unhappy for not clinching a job as a magistrate during recent interviews at the Judiciary,” Mr Okemwa said in a telephone interview.

Kitui Central sub-county police Commander Chrispus Ogutu ruled out foul play, saying his house was locked from inside and a belt was found around his neck.

A colleague at the DPP’s office revealed that the officer was plagued by debts and marital woes, and had recently separated from his wife.
