Nyeri - A cloud of grief has engulfed Kamakwa village in Nyeri Central sub-county after a 27-year-old expectant woman committed suicide.
The body of mother of one was found dangling from a tree in her family land.
She used a rope to hang herself on Saturday morning but the body was found later in the evening following a search conducted by family members and neighbours.
Shocked residents said the woman, who was operating a kiosk at Nyeri town matatu terminus, did not appear to be stressed thus raising more questions as to why she took the plunge of death.
Confirming the incident, area OCPD Masai Makau said the body was moved to the County Referral Hospital mortuary adding that police have launched investigations into the matter.
She urged members of the public to be confiding personal problems to their close friends instead of resorting to suicide.
