Tragic Incident: Woman Dies by Suicide After Domestic Quarrel in Kasarani, Nairobi.


A 29-year-old woman, Brenda Kawira Gitonga, reportedly died by suicide after a domestic quarrel in Kasarani area of Nairobi.

According to her boyfriend, they had an argument, and Brenda walked out to the balcony.

Shortly after, he heard a loud thud and found her body sprawled on the ground floor after searching the other rooms.

Despite the neighbours’ efforts, Brenda was pronounced dead upon arrival at Uzima hospital.

The police discovered visible injuries and bruises on Brenda’s body, and they are investigating the incident.

The increasing trend of suicide cases has raised concerns among authorities.

Police officials report up to four suicide cases daily, and suicide is among the leading causes of death globally, resulting in up to 800,000 deaths annually.

The World Health Organization attributes these cases to several factors, such as joblessness, death, academic pressures or failures, legal difficulties, financial difficulties, bullying, history of suicide in a family, substance misuse, depression, and bipolar disorder.

The government and other stakeholders have implemented measures and strategies to prevent suicide cases.

However, authorities are calling for more significant efforts to prevent more cases of suicide.
