Friday, June 26, 2020 – A 43-year old woman committed suicide by hanging herself after failing to pay a Sh30, 000 loan from a local welfare group popularly known as Chama.

The body of the deceased identified as Victorine Akinyi was found dangling from a tree near her home at Migoko village, Kachola Sub Location

According to residents, the time for repaying her loan had elapsed and members had threatened to auction her belongings.

Area Chief Richard Omollo said the deceased had attempted to commit suicide over similar reasons last year but she was rescued and her debt settled.

“The woman attempted suicide last year after she was overwhelmed with debts but she was saved by her neighbours,” Mr. Omollo said.

Ndhiwa Sub-County Police Commander, Robert Aboki, said police were investigating the incident because the deceased never left a suicide note citing reasons for killing herself.

Her body was taken to Manyatta mortuary at Kobodo Trading Centre.
