We talked a lot this week..lastly being Jana morning n u told me you were strong especially for Makena..
Av always told you that I have fought even physically to be where I am today..n u promised the same..but why did you lose it???..why did you get defeated???
You know I intervened but I was shut off ARROGANTLY that I also am a stranger in the family and I should keep off..
They pushed u to this..they will NEVER EVER have peace..You went too soon..too young dea

The residents were shocked to find the house messed up a sign that they had fought before Nyakundi murdered the wife.
Rono said that
“We immediately rushed to the house which was locked from inside. After breaking in we found that the wife’s body lying in a pool of blood while the man had already died. He had hang himself.”
Nyakundi was an employee at a neighbouring flower farm while Kerubo worked for another family in the neighbourhood as a house help. The couple had sent their four-year-old daughter to her aunt’s place for the December holiday.
Confirming the incident, Rongai OCPD Japheth Kioko said that no suicide note was left behind by the man and their bodies had been taken to Nakuru County mortuary.

Another male fans goes on to state that telling your problems to other people is not ‘manly ‘ according to the African setting hence the high suicide rates among men.”

A Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) student committed suicide in Juja this week, leaving his parents in shock.
Titus Ndirangu Mwai, who was a second year student at Jomo Kenyatta University, went missing on Monday before his body was found hanging in his house near the university’s gate D.
According to the Nairobian, the deceased was a man who kept to himself and apart from his poor grades, he had recently confessed to a local pastor about his plans to end his life over squabbles between his parents.

Last month Avicii’s Swedish publicist Ebba Lindqvist announced that the funeral would be held ‘in the presence of the people who were closest to Tim,’ without providing any more details.
No cause of death has been released, but in a statement last month Bergling’s family appeared to suggest he took his own life, saying that he struggled with his thoughts and ‘could not go on any longer’.
The letter, signed ‘The Family’, described Avicii as a ‘fragile artistic soul and a sensitive guy not made for the machinery he ended up in’.
Anthony Bourdain and other international celebrities who committed suicide
It says he ‘truly battled thoughts about the Meaning, Life, Happiness. Now, he could not go on any more. He wanted peace.’
In the days following his death, it was revealed that Avicii had been in a committed relationship with Czech-American model Tereza Kačerová, and was a doting step-father to her young son at the time of his death.
Ms Kačerová posted a heartbreaking open letter on her Instagram, in which she revealed that the pair had been planning on having children of their own, along with a series of photographs of them together.
Despite a meteoric rise to success following the release of hit-single Le7els in 2011, Avicii announced in 2016 that he would not longer perform live, following years health problems caused by stress and alcohol abuse, as well as severe anxiety.
A recent documentary, Avicii: True Stories shed light on the extreme pressure he was under, performing 320 shows in a single year.
In the documentary, Avicii, a self-confessed introvert, speaks frequently about using alcohol as a crutch to be able to perform, drinking every day during his hectic tour, and to help him with his crippling anxiety and stress.
At the age of 21 he was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis – a potentially life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas – due in part to excessive drinking.
In 2014, Bergling was again hospitalised and forced to have his gallbladder and appendix removed.
Avicii made a fortune during his short career, cashing in $28million in 2014 alone, earning $250,000 a night when playing out sold-out shows, according to GQ.
Avicii himself was less bothered about his millions, saying in 2013 that he ‘noticed straight away when I started making money, that I don’t need that much money’.
In 2012 he donated the entire income of his U.S. tour – more than one million dollars – to hunger relief charity Feeding America, and in 2013 he gave one million euros to Swedish aid organisation Radiohjälpen.
Bergling grew up in affluent Ostermalm in the Swedish capital Stockholm, and began producing music in high school.
He made a name for himself on the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) scene, before his breakthrough hit Le7els in 2011. He would later become known for hits like Wake Me Up!, You Make Me, and recently Lonely Together, a collaboration with Rita Ora.
He won two MTV Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award and earned two Grammy nominations. Just three days before his death, in his final post on Twitter, Bergling thanked the Billboard Music Award’s jury for his nomination int the Top Dance/Electronic Album category for his EP Avīci (01).
He died on April 20 in Muscat, Oman, where he is reported to have been holidaying with friends.
A few days after international chef Anthony Bourdain committed suicide local celebrity Kambua has opened up on having been depressed on a few occasions.
People with depression are looked down upon by the society and close family members with some being termed as ‘crazy ‘ and a nuisance which is not always the case,most cases of people with severe depression always ends up with the victim trying to take their life.
#Depression is REAL. As real as the air you breathe. I don’t know how many more people we need to lose to suicide in order for us to acknowledge that mental illness is a serious condition that needs treatment like the flu, or cancer… So many of us are fronting while dying a little every day. Too afraid to ask for help because people will talk, judge, or dismiss you. “It’s all in your head”, they say. Well YES it is in the head & heart. A brokeness in the mind, that can be fixed if we allow people to seek help. Someone earlier argued that therapy is expensive- I hear you. But getting help is not limited to sitting with a therapist. It could be a friend, a family member, a colleague… but the moment we make it seem as though there are no options is the very moment we take a plunge. Look, I’ve sometimes called a friend, or my mom and simply said, “I’m losing the plot”. And they’ve come to my aid. We all need help from time to time. Life can get so hard, but you don’t have to go at it alone. I know of FREE helplines if you want to talk to somebody. Also, if you’re reading this and you’re on the verge of giving up, please don’t give up. Please don’t give up. Please. Don’t give up. 🖤🌸 #2018#ReflectionswithKambua#mentalillness#Depression. If you’ve ever lost someone to suicide, place a heart here. Here’s mine: 💙
Kambua advised people who feel depressed not to fear asking for help as she had done so herself without fear of victimization,Depression affects anyone and every one regardless of social status nor class

“MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL HEALTH DRIVES EVERYTHING IN OUR LIVES, INCLUDING PHYSICAL HEALTH AND FITNESS. UNFORTUNATELY, MY BROTHER WAS NOT IN A MENTALLY GOOD SPACE AND CHOSE TO TAKE HIS LIFE 7 MONTHS AGO.
IF THERE IS 1 THING THAT’S GUARANTEED, IT’S THAT LIFE WILL HAPPEN.

SUICIDE ATTEMPTS HAPPEN EVERY SINGLE DAY. LET’S ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES ARE VERY REAL AND NEED TO BE CATERED TO THE SAME AS ANY OTHER DISEASE.
LET’S PAY ATTENTION TO OUR LOVED ONES, THOSE WHO SURVIVE IN SILENCE AND ISOLATION. LET’S LET THEM KNOW WE LOVE THEM, AND TRY TO GET THEM TO OPEN UP. IF THAT DOESN’T WORK, DON’T GIVE UP ON THEM AND DON’T BE EMBARRASSED TO SOLICIT HELP FROM FRIENDS, DOCTORS, PSYCHIATRISTS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, ANYONE THAT CAN CONNECT WITH THEM, GET THEM TO OPEN UP + PULL THEM OUT OF THEIR DARK HOLE OF DESPAIR.

This comes barely a week after a man killed his lover in Molo and later committed suicide.
A Molo man on Monday night stabbed his wife to death and committed suicide at Tayari estate in the outskirts of Molo town.
The 25-year-old woman was found in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds on the chest, neck, and stomach.

Residents said the two were engaged in a heated argument before the woman was heard screaming. Paul Itume, a neighbor said efforts to rescue the woman turned futile since the man had locked the house from inside.
He said neighbors managed to break into the house but they were shocked to find the man’s body hanging from the ceiling while that of the woman was in a pool of blood.
“I don’t know exactly what happened but we thought it’s the normal domestic squabble mostly experienced among youthful people. As residents, we are shaken by the unfortunate turn of events he said.
The woman is a teacher at a private school in Molo while the man is a bodaboda operator who residents described as quiet.
According to a suicide note seen by police, the deceased had accused the woman of having an affair with another man.
A former councilor Charles Njenga Matendo urged youths to seek counseling and also shun drugs. He said escalation of criminal incidents in Molo was being motivated by drug abuse and desperation amongst youths.
