Woman commits suicide inside ODM politician's home

She left behind a note with the name and phone number of her lover.


The body of the 22 year-old woman identified as Miriam Akinyi was found hanging from a rope inside the unfinished house of the Nereah Okombo, the area MCA.

Okombo later confirmed the discovery of the body in one of the rooms in her house.

She said she was informed after returning from the IEBC where she sought clearance for the election.

"After being cleared I went straight to my sister's place and that's when I was called," she said.

Next to the body of Akinyi was a note with the phone number of a man known as “Vinny”.

“I will never forget you vinny!” the note read.

Neighbours suspect that Akinyi had committed suicide after discovering her husband of having an extra marital affair.

The couple had a young child who was only 10 months old at the time of the incident.

County commander Titus Yoma confirmed the incident and said the man known as “Vinny” would be questioned by police as they launched investigations into the incident.
