The body of a k24 journalist based in Molo, Nakuru County, has been found dangling from a tree, dead in what is suspected to be suicide.
Witnesses said that they saw the journalist’s body hanging on a tree near his Gatura home in Elburgon on Sunday, May 24.
Reports from colleagues indicate that the journalist, George Kori, was reported missing 5 days ago, and no one had seen him since then.
A source who sought for anonymity told the journalist that the Mediamax employee left his phone in his parent’s house and took a walk to the farm and never returned home.
According to the source, the deceased mother had gone to report of his missing son when she was told that the body of a middle-aged man had been found hanging on a tree.
The mother accompanied the police to the scene only to find that the body dangling on a tree was his son’s.
The 34-year-old is said to have been struggling with depression and had turned to the bottle to deal with his problems.
“He was suffering from depression and was even on medication,” His relative said.
The depression seemed to have affected even his work as his colleagues claimed that he had not submitted any work over the last couple of weeks.
According to Korir’s mother, Nancy Njeri, her son was polite, obedient, and much disciplined, and he had no disputes with people.
Njeri however, said that his firstborn son was an introvert, and he always kept to himself and never shared his problems with anyone.
She said Korir had communicated his intentions to move out of their family house and get his own place.
Korir’s mother last talked with his son on Tuesday, and she recalled that he was jovial, and he did not show any signs that he had something bothering him.
