Man commits suicide in the wake of digging his grave

The reason behind the suicide has not been established.

A Homa Bay man who dug his grave several months ago is believed to have committed suicide.

The body of Charles Moseti, 50, was found dangling from a rope that was tied to the roof of a house at his place of work in Got Okombo village on Saturday morning.

The reason behind the suicide has not been established. Rachuonyo East subcounty police commander Charles Barasa said Moseti did not leave a suicide note.

“His death seems to have emanated from personal reasons but we are still investigating to get more information on the incident,” Barasa said.

It was reported that Moseti had dug a grave in his home in which he planned to be buried upon death.

“His pastor informed us that he had dug the grave at his home some months back. This was meant to prepare his family of his demise,” Barasa said.

The body was taken to Rachuonyo South subcounty hospital mortuary in Oyugis town.
