Man, 32, kills himself after wife fails to explain how she used Ksh300 from ‘family kitty’


A 32-year-old man from West Kaksingri Location in Suba South Constituency, Homa Bay County, committed suicide Monday after his wife failed to explain how she used Ksh300 “she had taken from their ‘family kitty’.”

Andrea Midome, a fisherman at Wadiang’a Beach, tied a manila rope to the eaves of his house before fatally strangling himself Monday morning (June 11).

Midome had, Sunday evening, unsuccessfully attempted to stab his wife with a kitchen knife. His wife managed to flee, leaving Midome alone in the house.

Area chief Samuel Obado said Midome, who hails from Vihiga County, got angry after his wife declined to explain how she used Ksh300 that she’d raised from selling ‘omena’ on Sunday.

Midome’s wife, consequently, spent the night away from her matrimonial home as she feared for her life.

Midome’s body was moved to Homa Bay County Referral Hospital mortuary.
