A 24-year-old man has committed suicide in his house and left behind a note that has details of his Mpesa pin.

Lawrence Munene, who hails from Kithiruri village in Kianjakoma Sub-location within Embu also left behind a mobile phone security pattern.

His family says the incident happened on Monday this week.

According to the family, the deceased’s younger sister identified as Murugi knocked on his door but he was not responding.

His father Silas Nyaga says the daughter alerted him after realizing that the house was quiet.

“My daughter (Ann Murugi) alerted me on what was happening and when I went to try to open the door, I realized it was closed from inside,” Nyaga said.

This prompted the father to break into the house only to find the body of his son dangling beside the bed.

In his suicide note, Munene had bid goodbye and also asked anyone who had issues with him to forgive him.

The deceased also asked that his goats are given to his nephew who is his sister’s son.

“I am so sorry to everyone who I have wronged. Please live a lovely and enjoyable life until we meet again. I will miss you so much,” the note seen by K24 Digital reads in part.

The family had been unlocking his phone. “We only found conversations with his friends and nothing much. So we are wondering what really prompted him to make such a decision,” his father said.

According to his mother Cecilia Wanja, her son was always kind and very humble.

Wanja said that the son also gave a hand whenever there was the need to assist.

“My son did not show any form of disturbance or discomfort because he wore a cool face and did not show any signs of depression,” Wanja said.

She said it was very confusing and asked for prayers.

Kianjokoma area chief Ezekiel Njagi has urged youths to find amicable ways of solving problems whenever they have challenges.

“I urge the younger generation to seek help from counsellors whenever they feel stressed. We are ready to listen and change situations for the better instead of losing someone’s life,” he said.

The deceased body is now at Gakwegori mortuary.
