Student commits suicide in a suspected love triangle.

07 June 2016, 20:34 Ben Wafula

Bungoma -  A 24 year old student at Matili Technical Training Institute in Kimilili, Bungoma County committed suicide after he differed with his female lover at the institution.

The student died at Kimilili Sub District hospital while receiving medication on Sunday.

The Student's Council Chairman Douglas Shiundu said the late was a jovial student and they were surprised to find out that he had committed suicide saying he never showed any signs of stress.

"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.

"Am calling on my fellow students not to commit suicide when they are faced with a problem, adding that every problem has a solution and taking away their lives will only affect their families," he said.

Efforts to get a comment from the institutions management failed because they were holed up in a board meeting.

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