rope_hangingA domestic dispute ended tragically in Nairobi’s Shauri Moyo estate after a man committed suicide on Saturday after his wife denied him sex.

25 year old Jesse Gatero was found hanging from the roof of his rented house, an hour after he was involved in a quarrel over his conjugal rights with his 23-year-old wife.

Gatero’s wife, Cecilia Wanjiku told police that Gatero arrived home drunk on Saturday 2am demanding sex.

Cecilia declined because she was on her monthly period.

She said that Gatero, a boda boda operator, turned violent forcing her to seek safety at a neighbour’s house.

She returned home after about 45 minutes only to find Gatero had taken his life by hanging himself with bedsheets.

Gatero’s fellow boda boda operators described him as a friendly and well composed man.
