A man from a village in Matuga Sub County committed suicide after a person he owes Sh2500 reported him to police.

Mr Gideon Njema who was a waiter at Rehema hotel in Kwale Town used a wire to hang himself on Monday after a deadline to pay back the money lapsed.

According to the hotel owner, Mbwika Nzuki, Mr Njema was served with a letter from the police on Monday morning and he promised to pay the amount by 3pm.

Mr Nzuki said at 3:30pm, the deceased excused himself from work before official time only to be informed of his employee’s demise on Tuesday morning.

“According to me the main reason for his action is the money and the fact that the matter had been reported to police,” Mr Nzuki told reporters on Tuesday.

The hotel owner identified the man who was owed as a Mr Mutunga who works at the office of adult education and who is a regular customer at the hotel.
