A young man Abiud Wangu Maina was so depressed and couldn’t handle it anymore. His friends wrote to us sharing screenshots of his goodbye message on Facebook.
It is alleged he committed suicide by car accident at Allsopps (outer Ring – Thika Superhighway junction) in the morning today after posting the message of goodbye on his Facebook page.
A series of messages on his Facebook page pointed to a man struggling with draining thoughts, the tell-tell signs were there all along.
Mr. Maina seem to have fallen on hard times and decided that it was not worth it.
Last week was the best week for me I was able to stand before my workmate of 11 years I was able to speak my heart but one thing I learned no one notice my tired eyes , that’s how bad depression is no one can notice depressed people acts ok , but I thank God I got the opportunity to say good bye. # End of an era
# Depression is real # pay attention to your friend behavior change – Abiud Wangu Maina, 28 December 2019, 12:55 a.m.
It is in his last message, ‘friends’ have trooped in to comment ‘RIP, ‘he should have talked’ and such things. Anyway no need to blame anyone only the fucked up economy, plundered by Jubilee.
The devolution isn’t working fast enough as it should, th blame is laid upon the Central government but you are aware how Governors such as Sonko (Nairobi), Waititu (Kiambu), Awiti (Homabay), Lenolkulal (Samburu), Roba (Mandera), Nanok (Turkana) etc are looting the coffers.
Instead of providing services to the people, making the economy more inclusive, and above all devising ways to make life easier for people at the counties by providing jobs to the youths, the governors are plundering the coffers. Corruption has been devolved and it is ‘eating’ at the people including the youth.
Sonko is barred from office for the irregular award of lucrative garbage tenders amounting to Ksh357 million where he also paid a firm associated with his close friend, ROG Securities Ltd. In total, the governor is said to have pocketed over Ksh20 million through proxies.
Waititu is ‘out of office’ for chewing hundreds of millions (over Ksh588 million) in irregular tender awards. He is also said to have bribed judges and MCAs.
Lenolkulal robbed Samburu County of over Ksh2 billion. In February, EACC released a press statement stating the county leaders formed companies that they used to award themselves tenders worth Kes. 700 million.
‘In other cases, contractors were irregularly awarded contracts worth over Kes. 1 billion, for works that were partly or never done, after which they paid kickbacks to top County Officers.’ The statement read in part.
Homabay County is in tatters, the revenue collection has fallen and the governor doesn’t care. He gave the senate committee some laughable reason, ‘fish has migrated to Uganda’. Governor Awiti is a joke, there’s no other explanation other than he is stealing money massively from the county coffers to fund ODM’s 2022 campaigns.
In Mandera, Ali Roba has pocketed the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC). In Wajir and Garissa, the situation is the same as Mandera.
We currently have 47 plus 2 thieves at the helm of our counties and our national government.
They don’t care about our welfare at all. It is a sad state of affairs.
To the family of Abiud Wangu Maina we send our condolences. RIP
