A 19 year old girl has committed suicide after finding out her boyfriend was cheating on her.
The girl hanged herself inside the family kitchen at their home in Faza town, Lamu East on Friday.
Lamu East OCPD Emmanuel Okanda said the Friday incident may be as a result of a nasty love triangle.
The girl had allegedly quarrelled with a group of girls over her boyfriend’s alleged cheating prior to the incident. She did not leave a note.
“We are still investigating but we understand the young lady had found out her boyfriend had another girl. She didn’t leave any note. We also understand she quarrelled with some girls shortly before she took her life and we looking into that too,” he said.
Okanda further went on to ask youngsters to understand that relationships will always have challenges at the same time asking those facing issues in their relationships to seek help and advise from their elders.
