According to the MP, Collins who is suspected to have committed suicide days ago had just reunited with the wife at their Nakuru home days to the incident.

The MP told the Nairobian that the death came only five days after the reunion, but would be found unconscious at his home on the day before dying at the War Memoria Hospital.

According to a relative, Collins, 39, had threatened to kill himself on social media and also shared a video of drugs he was intending to use for the purpose a day to the death.

The relative added that two days before he died, the families of the two had met to iron out their issues, but Collins appeared unsatisfied with the conclusion.

"I think he was not satisfied with the talks. Sometimes back, he was admitted at a rehabilitation centre. He was bipolar, though the condition wasn’t very serious.

His dosage of the drugs he used to commit suicide was one a day. But on that night, he took about 20 tablets to end his life," he said.

Collins was also jobless at the time while his wife was working with an energy firm in Naivasha.

He is set to be buried at the home of his father and former Cabinet Minister and Bomet MP Kipkalya Kones on Saturday.
