A 27-year-old man residing in the Ririma sector of Bugesera District was discovered dead, having apparently taken his own life. The incident occurred on the morning of Friday, February 23, 2024, in Murambi village, Nyabagendwa cell, Ririma sector.

Ephrem Sebazungu, the Executive Secretary of Ririma sector, revealed to IGIHE that the man’s death is suspected to be a result of suicide, stemming from conflicts with his wife. The couple, who shared a child, had experienced discord, leading to the wife’s departure to her parental home.

"We received reports around 9 am indicating a possible suicide. Upon arrival, with assistance from the Rwanda Investigation Bureau [RIB], we confirmed the tragic incident. It appears that the deceased was grappling with issues in his marriage, ultimately leading to his wife’s departure," explained Sebazungu.

The discovery of the deceased hanging by a rope was made by concerned neighbors who observed through a window. No note was left behind.

Sebazungu further noted that while local authorities were unaware of the couple’s conflicts, neighbors were privy to the situation.

He emphasized the importance of seeking assistance from authorities or trusted individuals in resolving marital disputes, highlighting communication as a crucial step towards resolution.

Notably, Bugesera District recently conducted a census of households experiencing conflict, offering counseling services to support those in need.
