A 42 year old Mucheke man on Wednesday killed himself by hanging from a tree in front of his in-law’s house.
Stephen Mumbirikiri was found hanging from a muchechete tree early Wednesday morning and a suicide was found in his pocket.
His wife Tendai Murinye 36 said that they have been married since 2006 and divorced last year and the late Mumbiriki was now staying alone at no 1396 Mucheke A.
‘ He went to South Africa last year only to return on Friday 24 April that is when he started to harass me,” said a visibly shaken Murinye
She claimed that the relationship with Stephen was abusive on the onset and the couple was now on separation at the time Stephen took his life.
Below is the suicide text seen by Wezhira Radio that the victim sent to Tendai before he hanged himself.
