Man commits suicide after being denied rights to sell land

05 February 2016, 09:39 Abuya Abuya

Nairobi - Shock has gripped residents of Seka village, Homa Bay County after the lifeless body of a 32-year-old man was found dangling from his roof.

According to neighbours, Amos Otieno committed suicide after his family members deterred him from selling a piece of land.

They further allege that Otieno had sold several other parcels of land before and this was the only remaining one, of which they hoped would help other members of his family.

“He has sons and daughters that need to be brought up with resources from the land but he had sold the largest part of his land. The family members intervened to protect future life of the children who will need the land and we suspect that might have made him take away his life,” said the relative.

Rachuonyo North OCPD Joseph Kisombe confirmed the incidence although adding that they had not yet established why the Otieno had decided to take away his life.

The deceased’s body was taken to Gendia Hospital Mortuary even as investigations into the matter continue.
