Woman dies hours after posting suicidal notes on Facebook
A woman identified as Millicent Kithinji allegedly committed suicide just hours after putting up cryptic updates on Facebook on Thursday 21, March.
Her last post was a farewell message to her daughter and she indicated that she had given up.
“My love…words are hard to form a perfect clause to express the love I have for you. I have fought the battle but seems like am being defeated…I only pray that God may give you guidance, love and comfort. Mom still loves you and will always love you.
“Kindly do forgive me,” wrote Kithinji.
Prior to that, she had also asked for forgiveness from her dad and it seems like she had already made up her mind.
“Dad sorry but can’t be able to break the news hope you will forgive me,” she wrote.
A look at her timeline indicates that she might have been battling depression as at one point she uploaded a photo of a dejected man holding a rope that was captioned, “Check on your friends. Ask them about their day or even if they have eaten anything.
“People are silently battling depression and afraid of being judged, misunderstood and avoided.”
Following the news of Kithinji’s demise, friends flooded her timeline with condolence messages and many regretted not responding to her cries of help.
“I woke up today morning to this sad news of your demise it’s so hard to believe…I admit I have failed as a friend since I always saw your alarming posts but it never crossed my mind it can get to this point ….am so sorry, I am sorry again ….and thank you for the lesson …. Safiri salama Milly… suicide has robbed us another young beautiful soul …. It’s sad ….” wrote Lizz Wanyua.
“The memories I have of you, will forever be flashbacks in my mind. It really hurts to lose you comrade. I already remember this one time tulipiga story huko redhart hadi tukachelewa kuattend lecture.
Rest in eternal peace,” added her friend only identified as Martin.
