Tuesday, December 31, 2019 - A middle aged man committed suicide in one of the ward’s toilets a day after he was rushed to Murang’a County Referral Hospital after his attempt to kill himself by taking poison failed.
The hospital’s Medical Superintendent, Dr. Leonard Gikera, said the deceased, who hails from Kangema, woke up at around 5am and took a bed sheet with him to the toilet.
“Cases of suicide of people aged below 40 years are on the rise and we advise young people to seek help and advice from members of clergy, community leaders and psychiatrists instead deciding to take their lives,” said Kinyua.
The police boss stated that they were trying to reach the family of the deceased as they proceed with investigations on what pushed the middle age man to take his life.
