Waiter commit suicide after failing to raise Sh2500 debt in Kwale

05 July 2016, 21:29

Kwale - A hotel waiter in Kwale took his life on Tuesday morning seemingly after failing to pay a debt of Sh2, 500 he had taken from his friend at Karanja village within Kwale town.

Njema Musau a waiter at Rehema café was found dead hanging from his rented one room house by neighbors.

Crowd gathered outside his house after news went round the town trying to get a glimpse of the incident.

Neighbors were attracted to his house after a pool of blood was seen coming out on the floor through the closed door.

His employer Mbwika Nzuki said that the deceased had a debt of Sh2, 500 that he had failed to pay his friend could be the reason of taking his life.

“I was informed that my employee was taken to Kwale police station by the person who owed him the money and he had promised to it by Monday 3: PM though he failed,” he said.

Nzuki said his servant left the work premise early and allowed him to go although he told his colleagues and the employer that, “we may meet tomorrow or fail to meet”.

“When he left the person who owes him Sh2, 500 arrived and asked me if I had paid the deceased his salary and I explained to him that I paid him last week,” he added.

“I pay my workers Sh5000 monthly but there are those who are paid on weekly basis. For him I had paid him the remaining Sh15, 000 last week,” said Nzuki.

He said most probably the stress about the debt and family issues might have caused him to commit suicide.

His land lord Edward Mtitika said that the deceased had stayed in the house for five years adding that he had a financial problems.

“He asked me to give him Sh100 so that he can go to Kinango hospital and see hi sick dad. He also have a swollen head which always disturbs him and we suspect that could have been the cause especially the stress part of it,” said Mtitika.

He said that the 32 years old man lived alone and always had financial problems although he has never failed to pay his Sh600 monthly rent.

Matuga OCPD confirmed the incident and said they have launched investigation into the matter.

“We have taken the body to Msambweni hospital mortuary,” he added.
