Suicide wave continues to sweep the nation: Woman commits suicide over chapati queries

A 20-year old woman by the name of Sharon hanged herself on Saturday 9 in Nyalenda Slums after her aunt Grace Auma quarreled her about buying chapati and beans instead of cooking at home.

The police in Kisumu are investigating the suicide to find out more on why the young woman committed the act. 

Auma had set aside money for lunch only to find out her niece had used it on ready-made chapatti and beans. When she asked Sharon about it, she locked herself in a room and took her own life after her aunt left for work.

Sharon’s body was taken to Jaramogi Oginga Hospital Mortuary as the family waits for more answers on what exactly happened.

Her uncle Nicholas commented that they did not identify any strange behaviour in the deceased before her suicide.
