Friday, August 09, 2019 - Barely a week after a 40-year old woman committed suicide after being diagnosed with cancer, a 65-year old man has taken his life after he found out he’s ailing from cancer.
The deceased hanged himself in his house on Thursday evening at Kwa Mwaura village in Laikipia East Sub-county.
Confirming the incident, Laikipia County Police Commander Maxwell Nyaema said:
“The deceased left behind a suicide note that was found in his house about 200 meters from Kalalu trading center.”
“It stated that he did it on his own and his wife, Teresia Kabariti Nyokabi, should not be asked anything,”
However, the police boss said that it was not clear the type of cancer the deceased was ailing from and its stage.
The body was moved to Nanyuki Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary
Last week, a 40-year old woman took her own life in Naivasha after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Cases of cancer have been rising in the country at an alarming rate with statistics indicating that over 48,000 cases are reported annually with 100 Kenyans dying from this monster daily.
