A 24-year-old man commits suicide, leaving behind a phone security pattern and the pin he used to transfer money on September 9, 2021.
Lawrence Munene, a 24-year-old man, committed suicide on Monday, September 6, leaving behind a suicide note, his phone security pattern, and his money transfer pin (Mpesa) for his family and friends to find.
According to reports, the dead are from Kithiruri hamlet in the Kianjakoma Sub-location of Kenya. Mr. Nyaga’s father, Silas Nyaga, stated that his son’s body was discovered after his daughter knocked on Lawrence’s (Lawrence’s) door and received no response.
According to Nyaga, they broke into the house when the deceased’s younger sister, Murugi, notified them after noticing that the house was deserted, only to discover the body of his son dangling beside the bed.
He stated that
“When my daughter (Ann Murugi) informed me of what was happening, I went to try to open the door and discovered that it had been closed from the inside.”
Lawrence wrote a suicide note in which he thanked his family and begged everyone who had a problem with him to forgive him. He requested that his goats be handed to his nephew, who happens to be the son of his sister.
It stated, in part,
“I sincerely apologize to everyone whom I have wronged. Please continue to live a nice and joyful life till we next meet. I am going to miss you a lot.”
It was only after unlocking his phone that they discovered “conversations with his friends and nothing else,” according to his father. According to Nyaga, “we are curious as to what exactly prompted him to make such a decision.”
C. Cecilia Wanja hailed Lawrence as a gentle and humble son in her letter to the editor. She expressed her confusion about the situation by stating that her late son was always willing to lend a helping hand whenever there was a need to do so.
The fact that he kept a cool expression and did not show any signs of depression explained why my son did not exhibit any signs of disturbance or discomfort.
Ezekiel Njagi, the area chief of Kianjokoma, has urged youths to find peaceful solutions to conflicts whenever they face difficulties in life.
He stated that
“I strongly encourage the younger generation to seek professional assistance whenever they are stressed. Instead of risking someone’s life, we are prepared to listen and modify things for the better.”
Lawrence’s body has been taken to the Gakwegori mortuary for burial.
