Royal Media Services comedian Okebiro O’mose wanted to kill his wife and brother before he committed suicide on Saturday. The comedian took his life during the weekend in his house at Imara Daima Estate, Nairobi.
Family members who spoke to Standard said that he had tried stabbing his wife and brother with a knife earlier on after an argument.
“He was armed with a knife and had become wild as he threatened to kill anyone in the house,” said Teresa Moraa, the widow.
Okebiro’s father said that if his wife had not ran away to their rural home, the comedian might have killed her too.
“I would be preparing to bury five people in my compound had it not been for the intuition of his wife and his brother, who had gone to negotiate for peace in the family,” said Mochere’s father Atandi Rabera yesterday.
The family also revealed the suicide note from Okebiro that shared why he took his life away. The letter was aimed at his wife. The two had been having issues in their marriage for almost four years.
“I have been patient enough but you have been stressing me for nothing. Take those children and look for another father who is not immoral and who has never seduced any lady. Goodbye,” read the note.
