Speaking to Citizen Digital, the deceased’s brother, Aaron Yegon, claimed he was embroiled in a domestic disagreement with his wife since learning that she was allegedly in a secret relationship with Mr. Kachekere.

Mr. Yegon further alleged that the behaviour of his brother’s wife drove him to frustrations and could eventually have pushed him to ending his life.
