Kenyan policeman committed suicide, leaving a suicide note
A Kenyan policeman whose name has been withheld killed himself, leaving a suicide note where he directed his colleagues to contribute money and pay his debts. The suicide note dated December 9 revealed that the dead policeman suffered depression due to his inability to pay his debts. In the suicide note, he explained that he had a debt amounting to Ksh81,000 ( almost N300,000) that he was struggling to settle.
The three-page suicide note included instructions from the late constable to his friends, asking them to form a group, contribute the sum of money, and settle his debtors, whose names were mentioned in the note.
For his burial rites, he wrote, “Just pick me and send me home.” He also added a special message to his family including his four children assuring them that he loved and cherished them so much.
He also gave instructions on how his clothes should be distributed. The Mombasa-based policeman’s body was found dangling from the roof of his house, with his clothes neatly arranged.
A former Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko, has, however, intervened by settling some of the debt left by the police officer. Sonko revealed that he had cleared the Ksh1,000 and Ksh50,000 debts which the deceased indicated in the suicide note.
