Enoch Omollo, 48, has reportedly killed his wife and committed suicide at their residence in Ukwala Location of Ugenya, Siaya County, Kenya, over their inability to have children.

According to reports, Omollo was found dead alongside his 43-year-old wife, Dorothy Omanya with a suicide note giving reason for his action.

Speaking about the incident, Chief Henry Oduor, Area Assistant, disclosed that he received a text message from relatives of the woman informing him of a possible murder in Uloma C village.

Oduor said; “I received a call at around 5.00am in the morning informing me that one of my residents had sent a message to his wife’s cousins telling them that he had killed their kin and so I rushed to his home immediately.”

He further explained that when he arrived the scene he found the lifeless body of Omollo’s wife in the bedroom of the house, while that of her husband dangled from a rope next to the bed with a suicide note narrating the events of the murder.

According to Oduor, the couple had disagreements over their lack of children which had led the man to marry another wife.

The bodies were taken to Ukwala sub-county Hospital Mortuary awaiting postmortem examinations as police investigate the incident.
