A 29-year-old  man  has  reportedly committed suicide by jumping into 20-ft well following domestic squabbles with his family.
According to reports, a resident who had gone to fetch water saw a lifeless body floating inside the well.
Narrating the incident, the resident who saw the body, Cherono said she went to fetch water at around 7 am on the day of the incident  and was shocked to see the water in the well looking dirty with clothes floating on top.
“I then took a long stick and on jabbing the clothes, I realized there was a body and raised the alarm to alert other villagers,” she said.
Residents say the  deceased operated a boda boda and also supplemented his income as a casual labourer at a nearby tea plantation.
Another  resident ,  Mzee Joshua Koech, said the man who lived some 300 metres from the well, had seemed stressed over the last week and had told fellow tea pickers that he would jump into a hole.
She added that  the man had had quarrels with his wife and father and apparently they had not taken his threats seriously.
As at the time  police officials  went for the body , scores of villagers, many without face masks watched in disbelief as security officers carried the body away in a police vehicle, with some murmuring that the deceased ought to have shared his problems instead of committing suicide.
 Police took his body to Kapkatet Sub-County Hospital mortuary for autopsy.
