A Kenyan man has ended his own life after taken to Facebook to write ‘Rest in peace to me’

His lifeless body was later discovered hanging from a tree.
The Kabiyet Ward Representative, Walter Teno, said the man and his wife had earlier met him on Monday to seek advice over their marital problems.

He also said the man had attempted to kill his wife before hanging himself.
“He stabbed her several times but she did not die. She is presently admitted to Kapsabet Referral Hospital. I am shocked by this. I thought we had solved the issues,” he said.
