Student commits sucide after being dumped by girlfriend

23 February 2015, 20:56 Jayden Kanuri

Nyeri - A medical student in Murang’a County has committed suicide after being dumped by his girlfriend.

The student who was pursuing a nursing course at the Kenya Medical Training Institute (KMTC) in Murang’a was found dead behind one of the hostels in the institution.

Students at the institutions claimed that he committed suicide by strangling himself with a tie shortly after he was dumped by the girlfriend.

This is the second death being reported at the institution this year, after an ealier incident where another student committed suicide after being barred from sitting for his final examination over a KES 6 000 fees arrears.

Murang'a East OCPD, Johnstone Limo said the police were alerted of the student's death by a staff at 6.00 am, after he went missing on the evening of the previous day.

An administrator at the institution who requested not to be named said: ''College administration is trying to contact the deceased relatives to help in the investigations."

Limo pleaded with the students to stop speculating on the cause of death and await the outcome of post mortem examination.
