Residents of a village are still trying to come to terms with the death of a man who hanged himself yesterday.
The body of David Kiiru Muriuki, who was a casual laborer, was found dangling on a tree at the Islamic cemetery in Murang’a.
Speaking to the media, one of the neighbours explained that the man had been complaining of financial stress and they suspect he took away his life because of desperation.
While confirming the incidence, Area Assistant Chief Mr. Abdullahi Adan said that the deceased was drunk at the time he committed suicide. He added that the police were still investigating the matter as the deceased left no note behind to explain the reason for the suicide.
His body was taken to Murang’a district hospital mortuary.
