Man Commits Suicide Days To Birthday After He Expressed Sadness On Facebook

A young man from Nyeri committed suicide after he aired his sorrows on Facebook, in a way it has become a painful trend for depressed youths suffering silently.

Owen Maina Macharia from Kiangoma Village, in Nyeri County, Kenya committed suicide in Mtwapa, Mombasa on Saturday, just 19 days to his 28th birthday.

Owen had poured his pains on Facebook days earlier but not even close relatives thought he was in the blink of taking away his life.

On January 15 the Njiiri School alumni posted; “Solutions to all problems is death. No man…no problems”. He expressed his woes further with a post saying; “Life after campus my friend”.


After his death his close relatives have expressed shock saying there were no telltales indicating he was headed that way.

His aunt Qui Wangui Philip wrote on Facebook; “I don’t know much, most will insult but it is serious. If anyone from your group of friends sends an SOS about death being the way out. Please please reach out and try help. My nephew wrote such I didn’t see it. Some of his friends joked about it and he was serious” she wrote.

She added; “He committed suicide. And now he is dead. It pains like hell that in didn’t see the message. That I didn’t reach out to help. Please please let’s avoid these deaths. Fare thee well Macharia OHwen Maina”

His other kin Jane Wangechi said it pained her to lose a relative “I’ve seen Owen growing, crawl, talk, walk, learn, and grown to a full gentleman, but God knows best”.

Owen worked for Invesco Assurance before shifting to Madison Insurance. Friends say he frequented Tribeka Bar and Restaurant in city centre.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
