A man on Thursday night hanged him­self af­ter killing his 3-year -old daugh­ter fol­low­ing a do­mes­tic dis­pute with his wife.

Musee Nzoka is said to have had a bit­ter ex­change with the wife, a sa­loon­ist at Iti­van­zou mar­ket. The wife took off when he threat­ened to slash her with a panga. She left her daugh­ter be­hind.

A wit­ness said Nzoka, in his early 30s, hanged his daugh­ter on a tree in his neigh­bour Musyoka Kakuli’s farm, be­fore hang­ing him­self in a dif­fer­ent branch of the same tree. Po­lice took the two bod­ies to the mor­tu­ary.

The in­ci­dent took place in Kyan­dani vil­lage in Ka­mu­wongo lo­ca­tion of Kyuso dis­trict. About a fort­night ago, as­sis­tant chief Mutinda Mwinzi was found dead in his house. His body was found hang­ing from the roof.
