The man who died by suicide shortly after writing ”Rest in Peace to me” on his Facebook page allegedly planned to kill his wife after she accused him of infidelity.

Dennis Yego Kogo’s relatives said on Thursday that he bought a knife and a rope from a local supermarket on Monday.

They said he did so shortly after meeting the area chief, who summoned him after his wife, Zeddy Chepchirchir, filed a report.

He reportedly used the knife to stab her several times before hanging himself that night in the compound of a local church. She was taken to Kapsabet County Referral Hospital.

Yego, from Tegeyat village in Kabiyet, Nandi County, wrote the message on the social media site at about 8.05pm on Monday.

Then came a message that stated “Kama kuna mtu ananitai then kam before midday tomorrow morning [sic]. (If I owe you money, come see me tomorrow morning).”

Yego’s family said he and his wife appeared to have reconciled at the weekend, so they were shocked when they saw what he wrote on Facebook.

They said Ms Chepchirchir questioned him about an extra-marital affair.

When the Nation visited their home on Thursday, other family members said the couple did not have a bitter quarrel so the turn of events was shocking.

”They had been living happily. Yego ran a boda-boda business at Kabiyet to provide for his wife and their two children,” said his cousin, James Rop.

“Yego and his wife were together the same night he took his life. The family saw, after the incident, that he had posted on Facebook [saying] he planned to die. They could not do anything about it … it was too late.”

Kabiyet Chief Hosea Kosgei said he counselled the man and his wife for hours earlier on Monday, not knowing what would happen later.

“His wife reported him to my office on Sunday and I advised them to see me on Monday. When we met on Monday, the lady accused him of infidelity and irresponsibility at home,” Mr Kosgei said.

“The assistant chief, village elder and I talked to them for more than three hours. [They] were okay because they even went shopping together at a nearby supermarket.

“I was later informed that when they went shopping, he instructed his wife to wait for him outside. It’s suspected that that was when he went to buy the knife he used to stab his wife and a rope.”

He regretted that such cases are on the rise, saying at least three are reported every week.

Kabiyet Ward Representative Walter Teno said the man and his wife also met him earlier on Monday.

“He came to my office with his wife. They were having issues which they wanted me to help them resolve. The wife had run away from their home. We talked and they agreed to go home and live together,” Mr Teno told the Nation.

Nandi Police Commander Samson ole Kine said the man’s body was on Tuesday found hanging from a tree near his home.

Mr Kine said on Wednesday that there was no suicide note.

The police boss asked people facing challenges to seek help from church leaders and other professionals.

TV news anchor Anne Kiguta has announced that she would like to share with her fans more about her life.

However, she draws a line on exposing her children to the limelight.

Anne has three children, one from her previous marriage and fraternal twins with Jomo Gecaga.

Responding to a fan who asked her about her babies, Anne posted a photo of her and her twins but blocked out the faces.

In her response she explained,

“Gosh, so many of you have said this… was the number one response. Well, I will have to let you down on that my loves.”

She added,

“I’m rather traditional (believe it or not) so I’m vehemently against it. My babies are are all still too young, including the eldest, to be on social media.”

Anne continued,

“In fact I really regret having posted my eldest at all. Mummy already has a pretty public life. They deserve their privacy.”

But not to break her fans hearts, Anne promised,

“A reference every once in a while but nothing more than that for a long long time.  Hope  you understand.”

In another post she still emphasized,

“That is my son. Quite the charmer. If only I could tell you half of what they say! But all these are are to me sacred moments…really can’t share much more.”

Not to be daunted though, Anne promised to talk about other aspects of her life.

Shock as man ‘resurrects’ in a Kericho mortuary

There was drama at Kapkatet sub-county hospital in Kericho on Tuesday night when a 32-year-old man who had been presumed dead and taken to the mortuary regained consciousness close to three hours later.

Mortuary attendants were getting ready to embalm Peter Kigen’s body when they noticed some movements.

Kigen, a resident of Kibwastuiyo village in Bureti Constituency, is said to have collapsed while at home before his family took him to hospital.

His younger brother, Kevin Kipkurui, said he was present when Kigen collapsed. With the help of their cousin, they took Kigen to the hospital at 5.30 pm.

“When we arrived at the casualty department, we met a doctor who asked us to register the details of the patient at the reception while he attended to him,” Kipkurui, who was still in shock, told The Standard.

After registering the patient, Kipkurui said he was again asked to the National Hospital Insurance Fund desk for further documentation of his brother.

Kigen reportedly suffers from a chronic illness.

“When I went back to the casualty department at around 7.45 pm, I learnt my brother was dead. A nurse told me that he died long before we arrived at the hospital,” Kipkurui said.

He added: “The nurse later handed me a document to take to the mortuary attendant before my brother’s body was moved to the morgue.”

However, at 10.30 pm, Kipkuriu said, as they were waiting for embalming of Kigen’s body, they were informed that in fact, he was not dead.

Mortuary attendants who mummified the body told them that Kigen had regained consciousness.

“The mortician called me into the morgue and we saw him make movements. We were shocked. We could not understand how they could move a person who is still alive into the mortuary,” Kipkurui said.

Kigen, who spoke from his hospital bed yesterday, said he was shocked to learn that he was thought to have died and even taken to the mortuary.

“I cannot believe what just happened. How did they establish that I was dead?” he said.

Kirui, who donned his light-blue hospital uniform, was nevertheless happy to be alive and vowed to dedicate his life to evangelism once he’s discharged from hospital.

“I did not even know where I was when I regained consciousness, but I thank God for sparing my life. I will serve him for the rest of my life,” he said.

The hospital’s medical superintendent Gilbert Cheruiyot said Kigen was in critical condition when he was brought in.

Dr Cheruiyot said: “His relatives presumed he was dead and did not even wait for certification of death. They moved him to the mortuary, on their own.”

He said the clinical officers at the casualty were busy attending to other critically ill patients when Kigen was brought in, including an epileptic and a diabetic patient.

“They asked Kigen’s relatives to give them some time but they accused the clinicians of taking too much time and decided to take him to the mortuary. It was while the mortician was getting ready to embalm his body that she noticed some signs of life,” said Cheruiyot. He said the mortician informed the team at the casualty department which took Kigen back and begun resuscitating him. The process took three hours before the patient was stabilised.

“The patient was later taken to the ward and is responding well to treatment. We hope to discharge him in a few days,” Dr Cheruiyot said yesterday.

He added: “I advise those bringing their loved ones to the hospital to follow the laid down regulations. Before a body is moved the mortuary, it has to be certified by a clinician. In Kigen’s case, we can only say he was lucky, especially because of our qualified mortician who checked him before making any move,” said Cheruiyot.

The bizarre incident saw local MCAs, led by the Majority Leader Hezron Kipngeno, storm the hospital. This is after Chelanget MCA Hezborn Tonui demanded a statement from the heath committee over the incident that shocked the county.

Ciru Njuguna is 28 and her husband Greg Twiss is 60. Please don’t let that age gap fool you, these two deeply love each other and they are living their best life together.

But when people say Ciru is just after Greg’s money and he will end up in a septic tank, that gets to her. She is not ashamed of her relationship and strongly urges the public to let other people be.

“My German husband is older than my father. People say I am his slave and he is a colonial master,” she says.

She sat down with Lynn Ngugi for this exclusive episode of Tuko Talks and this is her story.
