Man hangs himself in his house in Nyeri

06 January 2014, 16:15 Joseph Njung’e

Nyeri - Residents of Chania Estate, in Nyeri, on Monday woke up to a rude shock after a man hanged himself using a school-bag strap.

 The father of three was found hanging from a rafter in his timber house which was locked from inside.

The man, only known as Baba Allan had been left alone over the weekend in his house since his wife and children had gone to their grand mother’s place.

Upon returning home on Sunday evening, they found the door locked from inside and thought the deceased was asleep after a drinking spree, which he was renowned of on weekends.

The family’s efforts to break the door, gain entrance were futile and they were forced to seek shelter from their neighbour.

On Monday morning, they tried to open the door but in vain and asked for help from neigbours who broke the door to gain entrance.

His elder son, a primary school pupil was the first to enter the room and broke into tears after seeing his father hanging from the rafter.

The body was removed by police officers to Nyeri provincial General Hospital mortuary.
