A 50-year-old man killed himself following a quarrel with his wife over failing to make enough food to satisfy him.

The father of ten identified as Samuel Otieno Abuya, is said to have consumed Gladiator, a termite pesticide, after a quarrel that almost turned violent with his wife and family at Migosi Village in Gem, Siaya County.

Trouble began when his wife prepared Ugali for the family but the potion became too small to satisfy her husband.

Otieno is then said to have lost his temper and chased his family out of the homestead by pelting them with stones.

The family is reported to have gone back home only to find the head of the family dead.

Neighbours say the family has had many wrangles, with the man said to have been spending most of his money on alcohol.

Neighbours say they had to help the wife with feeding the large family as a result of the man’s behaviour.

Police collected the body of the deceased and took it to Yala Mortuary and are carrying further investigations into the incident.
