The tight-knit community of Kawach village is grappling with shock and sorrow as they come to terms with the grim discovery of 21-year-old Nachap Hellen’s lifeless body hanging from a tree.
This heartbreaking incident unfolded in the aftermath of a bitter dispute with her brother over a modest sum of 7000 shillings.
Reports from witnesses detail that Nachap had borrowed the money from her brother, Mungan Isaac, assuring him of repayment by the previous day.
When Mungan approached her to collect the debt, Nachap tearfully confessed her inability to fulfill the commitment, requesting just one more day.
The situation took a distressing turn as her brother, angered by this revelation, initiated a verbal confrontation that quickly escalated into a violent fistfight.
Overwhelmed, Nachap fled the scene, tears marking her distress, only to be tragically discovered later, her life cut short by a rope tightly wound around her neck, hanging from a tree.
The profound grief experienced by Mungan, her brother, drove him to the brink of despair. He hastily secured a rope, intending to end his own life in the nearby bush.
Swift intervention from alert residents, however, prevented this tragic outcome. Subsequently, Mungan was restrained and handed over to the police for questioning.
The police spokesperson, Mike Longole, confirmed Mungan’s custody, assuring further investigations into the devastating incident that has left the community pondering how a dispute over a seemingly trivial sum of money could lead to such a profound and tragic conclusion.
