A cloud of sadness and confusion descended upon Kasaye Kokoth Kataa location within Karachuonyo constituency, Homa Bay County, as news broke of the untimely demise of Daisy Akoth, a 20-year-old former student at Mawego Training Institute.

The young woman had taken her life under unclear circumstances, leaving the community in shock and mourning.

According to the area chief, Michael Owino, the unfortunate incident occurred while Daisy was at her uncle’s house, with her grandmother away attending church services.

“We are yet to know the main reason why the former student of Mawego TTI may have decided to take away her life since she only left behind a note indicating M-Pesa pins to the two lines she owned.”

Earlier that day, Daisy had complained of headaches, prompting her to remain at home, relaxing under a tree.

Tragically, it was the last time she would be seen alive.

Upon the grandmother’s return from church, the heart-wrenching discovery was made.

Daisy’s lifeless body was found hanging from the rooftop of her uncle’s house.

The reasons behind her decision to take such drastic measures remain a mystery, leaving family and friends searching for answers.

All that was left behind was a note containing the M-Pesa pins of the two communication lines she owned and her phone.

The cryptic message offered no clear explanation for her actions, leaving the community grappling with grief and unanswered questions.

Chief Owino expressed his bewilderment at the incident, stating that Daisy had been left in the care of her grandmother, with whom she resided.

Her sudden passing has left the community in shock and mourning the loss of a young life filled with promise and potential.

The area chief took the opportunity to urge parents and guardians to maintain close relationships with their children, offering support and a listening ear to help them navigate life’s challenges.

He emphasized the need to foster open communication and encouraged parents to be vigilant for signs of distress in their children.

“What has happened is demonic and very sad, let us as parents keep our children close to enable them to share with us problems they usually face,” he said.

As the community mourns the tragic loss of Daisy Akoth, her body has been taken to Kendu Bay Adventist Hospital for preservation.

The incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of mental health awareness and support systems within society.
