Villagers of Mkongani, Kenya were shocked as a 63-year-old man last weekend committed suicide in a very strange manner.
According to witnesses, Mwokoli Kahindi Baya, a palm wine tapper from Mkongani sub-location, first dug a grave outside his homestead and spent his last day drinking and talking about his death while bidding friends goodbye, SDE Kenya report.
“He dug a grave in a place he had identified outside his compound. He also tore up all his personal documents, including his national identity card, land documents and school fees receipts, and threw them inside the grave,” said Mkongani Assistant Chief Albert Menza.
Moments before he killed himself on Friday night, Mr Baya was heard chanting funeral songs before whistling three times and shouting a final farewell in the darkness.
