Tough life made me attempt suicide 3 times, student says
With his back against the wall and aged only 17 then, James Mwangi had experienced life’s upheavals that weighed heavily on him. He was restive and dejected.
He decided to take his own life and attempted suicide three times.
On the second attempt, he took a concentrated herbicide but still did not die.
“I locked myself inside the house, took poison and waited to die. It did not happen,” he opened up.
Tired of a tumultuous short life, the teenager’s preferred option to end his miseries was death.
