Kenyan Politician Faces Charges For Suicide Attempt

An aspiring presidential candidate in Kenya is expected to be charged today after attempting to take his own life over the weekend.

Local media report that Peter Solomon Gichira tried to jump from the sixth floor of the offices of the country's electoral commission on Saturday after his nomination papers were rejected.

The Daily Nation quotes a police commander as saying that he broke the window on the sixth floor and attempted to jump but he was rescued by two officers.

It adds that Mr Gichira should appear in court today and faces charges of attempted suicide and malicious damage to property.
