An old man identified as Protais Rwanzegushira, 60, from Rusebeya Sector of Rutsiro District has been found hanging with a rope around the neck. He is suspected to have committed suicide.

The incident happened in Munini Village of Kabona Sector in the afternoon of Sunday 28th August 2022.

It is said that the old man went to graze cows early in the morning and retuned home around 12:00 noon.

According to sources, the old man sent his daughter to buy items at Muyira business center and found the father hanging as she returned.

The Executive Secretary of Rusebeya Sector, Janvier Ntihinyurwa has told IGIHE that the old man may have committed suicide even though the reason behind taking his life remains unknown.

“It is apparent that he climbed onto a ladder, wrapped his neck with a rope made from a mosquito net and jumped. We found the ladder around his body,” he said.

Residents have been urged to report their problems to local leaders for assistance instead of considering suicide.

Rwanzegushira is survived by a wife and four children. His body was taken to Murunda Hospital for postmortem before burial.
