MP’s Son Commits Suicide Hours After Posting Chilling Message on His Face book Page

Would a single disagreement with a spouse push a 39 year old man with a family into committing suicide or the disagreement was the peak of pent up issues?

This is the question family and friends of Collins Kipyegon, the son of the late former Cabinet minister Kipkalya Kones and Bomet East MP Beatrice Kones are asking after he allegedly took his own life.

A source close to the family told the press: “There is the claim that Collins had a disagreement with his wife and that moments later, he posted on social media that he would kill himself.”

Through his social media messages, the 39-year-old reportedly said he was tired of life.

Friends who read Mr Kipyegon’s message rushed to their house in Ngata on the outskirts of Nakuru County, some 13 kilometers from Nakuru town.


The friends broke into the house and found the third bone in the family of five unconscious. They took him to Nakuru War Memorial Hospital where he died as doctors tried to save his life.

His mother, Hon Kones was in South Africa where she had been attending a pan-African parliamentary meeting when the incident happened.

Former Deputy State House Comptroller Franklin Bett and leaders from Kericho and Bomet were among people who went to the mortuary to view Mr Kipyegon’s body.

Rongai divisional police commander Japheth Kioko said that they were probing suicide.
