A 22-year-old man from Kinamba Village in Naivasha killed himself on Thursday over relationship woes.
Francis Njuguna, whose body was found hanging from the roof of his house, left a suicide note, in which he accused his 18-year-old girlfriend of cheating on him endlessly.
Njuguna worked at a butcher’s shop in Kinamba.
In his suicide note, Njuguna said he was committed to loving the teenager wholeheartedly, and that he couldn’t imagine a life without her. He said he was left with no other choice but to end his life because he was hurting as a result of his lover’s non-stop infidelity.
Njuguna’s friend, Peter Muchina, said the 22-year-old told him on Wednesday night that he and his girlfriend were having serious relationship issues.
“He [Njuguna], however, did not hint at having any suicidal thoughts,” said Muchina.
“I was shocked Thursday when he did not report to work, only to find his body hanging from the roof in his rented house located on Naivasha-Kirima road,” said Muchina.
The deceased was taken to Naivasha Sub-County Hospital morgue.
Naivasha Deputy OCPD John Kwasa confirmed the incident.
