County Council worker commits suicide

11 April 2013, 12:16 Fridah Mutune

It was a saddening moment for residents of Mwingi town after the body of a man in his late 20s was found dangling on a tree within the compound of the Mwingi local government offices.

According to close sources, the deceased worked with the county council of Mwingi at the time of his death.

It is not yet known why he committed suicide.

It was alleged that Kilonzi, the deceased, had attempted suicide before within the same compound prompting his relatives to take him back to his rural home.

It is still a mystery how Kilonzi got back to the town where hanged himself unnoticed since all gates were sealed.

While addressing the residents, Mwingi OCPD Simon Birir assured them that investigations into the matter shall be carried out including a postmortem to establish the possible cause of such an act.

Simon asked the residents to be their brothers' keepers to avert similar occurrences in future.
