Man commits suicide to escape nagging wife
DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania, Wed Dec 24
(Reuters) - A Tanzanian man killed himself by drinking a chemical
used in cattle dips, leaving a suicide note saying it was to escape
a nagging wife, police said on Wednesday.
The body of the 32-year-old
was found in the commercial capital Dar es Salaam on Sunday with
the suicide note and a glass containing
traces of the chemical, used for killing insects on livestock,
regional police commissioner Alfred Tibaigana told Reuters.
"I've decided to end my life," Tibaigana quoted the suicide
note as saying.
"I am fed up with the constant nagging of my first wife."
Police did not have any further details about the man's death
in the east African country, where polygamy is common.
