The Parish Chief of Labworomo Parish in Palaro sub-county, Gulu district has reportedly committed suicide.

Akera Alex Kawa, 31, is said to have committed suicide by injecting a poisonous chemical at unknown hour last night.

Odong George, the Speaker of Palaro Sub County confirmed the report saying the deceased’s wife had recently complained that Akera was having an extra marital affair with a local bar owner.

Odong said that he held a mediation meeting between the couple with the deceased promising to end the extra marital affair.

Reports say that the deceased resorted to ingesting poison after his wife decided to return to her parent’s home on Monday with their four children.

Odong said that Akera was taken to Gulu Regional Referral Hospital where he died in the wee hours of Wednesday.

Police in Aswa River Region have blamed the increasing cases of death by suicide on domestic violence, sickness, poverty, use of drugs and court issues.
