A witchdoctor from Maili Saba in Trans Nzoia County committed suicide on Tuesday, January 2 after he allegedly got frustrated due to lack of clients.
The body of the witchdoctor was found hanging from a rope tied to the eaves of his house.
His neighbours alleged that the witchdoctor killed himself after the number of clients dwindled significantly.
“Hard economic times pushed him into committing suicide. For long, he did not have clients. Residents of this area hardly seek witchdoctors’ services,” said one resident.
Area chief Esther Waswa confirmed the incident.
“We received information that he committed suicide in his house. According to the witchdoctor’s neighbours, he went missing on Monday,” said Ms Waswa.
