Mary Khahoya the widow said that he suspects the husband committed suicide because Omena wasn’t part of his meal. She says the husband came home late and the coveted meal had been shared among family members.
“He greeted us, and went to the bedroom. I, thereafter, took his meal – ugali and sukuma wiki – to where he was. He asked why omena wasn’t part of the meal. I told him it was because he arrived late, and that the entire [omena] dish had been served to the other family members,”
“Later, when I went to the bedroom, I found his body hanging from a sisal rope tied to the rafters above our bed. I was shocked. I suspect he took his own life following the frustration of being served a meal without omena in the menu,” said Khahoya.
However Zablon Mukoshi, a preacher where deceased used to fellowship, refuted the claims saying the deceased took his life due to family wrangles.
The deceased was taken to Kakamega County Referral Hospital morgue as investigations into his death continue.
