A mother of one, by the name Millicent ‘Millie’ Kithinji committed suicide on Thursday after writing a heart-wrenching message to her daughter and father.
On Facebook, she had asked her daughter to forgive her before killing herself.
“My love…words are hard to form a perfect clause to express the love I have for you. I have fought the battle but seems like I am being defeated,” Millie wrote.
“I only pray that God may give you guidance, love and comfort. Mom still loves you and will always love you. Kindly do forgive me,” she added.
Following a Facebook post she sent to her friend, Millie was struggling to get a job despite having a Diploma in Purchasing and Supplies Management.
“I did a Dip in purchasing and supplies. I know it is hard to get employment as a procurement officer, but if I can get jobs such as store clerk, receptionist, a waitress, sales representative, and cashier at a supermarket or a shop, I think I can do my best because I have suffered a lot,” she had stated before her death.
“For now, I am not choosy when it comes to jobs as long as it will pay me,” she added.
Ms Kithinji added she had been married to a man who was running a clinic at Muthiga but life changed when his business run low.
“Still, life became worse and I had to take my girl to a day-care and would walk all day into Nairobi CBD and Westlands looking for a job,” part of her post read.
Millicent also wrote a note to his father asking for forgiveness.
“Dad, I am sorry, but I am not able to break the news that I am about to commit suicide. I hope you will find it in your heart to forgive me,” read Ms Mwriki’s Facebook post at 3:20pm.
She was found by her father hanging from a rope tied to the rafters of their storehouse in Gaturi village.
