Police puzzle suicide cases increase in Nairobi

28 October 2015, 18:00 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Police are asking questions after 2 persons committed suicide in Nairobi as the number takes a steep rise.

The first incident took place in the city's Dandora estate Tuesday evening where the body of a man was found hanging in his bedroom.

The man left a suicide note which indicated that he was tired of the hardships of life and had decided to take a permanent break.

Another body was found in a house in Huruma estate.

It is understood that the man took his life after a serious quarrel with his family. Police are investigating both incidents to establish the motives.

They also say that there has been an alarming increase in suicides in the city, which is a cause for concern for them.

" There are increasing numbers of suicides which have left us worried. We are investigating why and we hope to come to the bottom of it," Nairobi Police boss Japheth Koome told News24.

Suicides are not permittable by law in Kenya.

Analysts decry the high cost of living and the general negativity clouding the country as the reason behind the increased levels of frustration and in extension, suicides.

" The country is currently experiencing some negativity. There are few jobs, no money, failing currency as well as the numerous corruption scandals," Alvin Khisa, a Nairobi based psychiatrist says.
