A 30-year-old man in Kabale District has committed suicide after he allegedly failed to raise money to buy salt for his family.
Preliminary investigations by police indicate that Michael Denis Owamani was asked by his wife to buy salt for the family before he threatened to kill himself.
According to police, the deceased’s wife left home and returned later to find a photo of his husband with a cross mark.
This prompted her to rush and inform her in-laws, who also came and found the body hanging on a rope in his sitting room.
The deceased hails from Nyakabungo village, Rwene parish, Buhara sub county Kabale District.
Elly Maate, the Kigezi regional police spokesperson told our reporter that the suicide case was reported to Rwene police station on Sunday evening.
