‘It all happened so fast. I was unable to stop instantly and I couldn’t risk veering off the road,’
said the ill fated bus driver.
According to a source close to the deceased, the man had threatened to commit suicide after ‘the love of his life’ declined to relocate to Kisumu to live with him.
The source alleged that the deceased had sent suicidal notes to the woman in question who according to the source did not take him seriously.
‘He was demanding that the woman comes to stay with him in Kisumu, or else he would commit suicide as there was no sense in living without her,’
said the source.
The young man identified as ‘Billy’ who reigns from Kabondo in Nyanza, died instantly in the 9.40 pm incident. It is however still unclear who the alleged mystery woman could be and whether the man had committed suicide due to a love triangle.
No passengers in the bus were injured. Passengers in the bus have embarked onto another bus by the same company and en-route to Nairobi.
Police in Kisumu are investigating the incident to determine what exactly transpired leading to the suicide. May his soul rest in peace.
