"Antony Wanjala was taking Fabrication and Welding course is suspected to have taken poison after disagreeing with his female lover who is also a fellow college student. He never left behind any suicide note to indicate his reason of doing it," he said.
Shiundu said that since an investigation had been launched by the police to unravel the puzzle that led to his death, students should avoid propaganda.
"We are deeply saddened by his death, he was a promising students who would have assisted his parents in future, am calling on the administration to offer more guiding and counseling sessions to the students to avoid such incidents in future," said Shiundu.
He called on students to stop engaging in immature relationships while in schools if they can't handle them accordingly.

The body was taken to Dreamland Hospital morgue as it awaits a post mortem to a certain the main cause of death.
