More Than 5 Kikuyus Commit Suicide Every Day, Where Is The Problem?

The graveyards in Nyeri, Nyandarua and Kirinyaga counties are full of people who died as a result of taking their own lives. A shocking report by a regional newspaper paint a grim picture of the situation in Mt Kenya that requires urgent attention.

According to MT. KENYA STAR, at least four people commit suicide in Nyeri every passing day. At least one takes their own life in Kirinyaga.



A recent documentary by the British Broadcasting Corporation that focused on Nyandarua County also showed that many were taking their own lives in that region.
There has not been any official inquiry or a fact finding mission by government to determine the root cause of the problem. Kenyans on social media tried to decipher the situation by suggestion problems that could be ailing the region.








There are very few organizations addressing suicide in Kenya despite the rising number of incidences in the country.
