A 20-year-old student at Kirinyaga University lost his life yesterday morning, after falling from the third floor of an apartment in Juja, Kiambu county.
According to police, Taylon Mbuthia a second-year student at the Kirinyaga based university tumbled on the ground floor and died on the spot, after binge drinking with his girlfriend and her other boyfriend.
”Before meeting his death, Mbuthia had on Sunday visited his girlfriend Margaret Nyambura, a first-year student at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT). They partied and had a good time in the house on Sunday through Monday, together with Margaret’s roommate only identified as Shantel, and another man identified as Joe Momanyi. However on Monday during the day, they were joined by one Brian Andaki, a fourth-year student at JKUAT, who had come to pick the same girl whom the deceased had gone to see. When Andaki inquired who the deceased was, Margaret introduced him as her cousin, who had brought greetings from home” reads a police report
Trouble began after Nyambura identified Mbuthia as her cousin on Monday.
The young students would later go on with merrymaking until late Monday night when they decided to go look for what to eat.
“The two are believed to have fought at Margaret’s door before the deceased landed on the ground floor under mysterious circumstances,” said the DCI.
One lady, only identified as Shantel was already intoxicated and could barely move thus remained sleeping.
