A man committed suicide in Butula, Busia County, after getting into a heated argument with his wife over a New Year’s meal.
Boniface Okwero from Nanyungu Emauko village is said to have been angered by his wife on New Year’s after she reportedly made him a lunch meal of ‘kunde’.
According to the area assistant chief Boniface Oyosa, the deceased began by setting their matrimonial home ablaze before hanging himself on a tree.
The deceased expected his wife to make him a meal consisting of either beef or chicken for New Year. However, he came home only to find she had made him kunde.
This angered the deceased and he went ahead and burnt the house before hanging himself despite not giving the wife to buy the meat.
