Jubilee MP whose son committed suicide in mourning following daughter's death

Tragedy strikes again, a month after son committed suicide

Family members overcome by grief during the burial of Collins Kipyegon Kalya

The family of Bomet East Member of Parliament Beatrice Kones is in mourning following the death of Vicky Chebet Kones.

Vicky passed on barely two months after her elder brother Collins Kipyegon Kalya died after committing suicide.

Vicky passed on while receiving treatment at a hospital where she had been admitted after her condition worsened on Tuesday.

The deceased’s brother Kevin Kones revealed that “Vicky had been unwell but her condition worsened on Tuesday night. She was rushed to hospital where the doctors tried to stabilise her but, unfortunately, she did not make it”.

Reports indicate that the deceased was battling with alcohol addiction, a battle that had seen her check in rehabilitation centers several times.

Vicky will be remembered for her efforts in supporting those battling addiction and alcoholism after she became a counsellor, borrowing from her own experience.

She appeared several times on local media houses in programs touching on alcoholism, substance abuse and addiction.

Her brother Kevin confirmed to Nation that she was always trying to leave clean and overcome alcoholism.

“She admitted that she was battling this condition and was always trying to live clean,” Kevin said.

The family recently buried 39 year old Collins Kipyegon Kalya who took his own life due to stress and frustrations of life.

Friends who rushed to his house upon reading the post on social media reportedly found him unconscious and rushed him to Nakuru’s War Memorial Hospital where he was admitted at the Intensive Care Unit.

During his burial, Bomet East Member of Parliament Beatrice Kones – who flew back from South Africa wondered what may have pushed her son to suicide, noting that there was nothing he lacked in his life.
