College student set for graduations at Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) allegedly commits suicide.
The Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) student who was about to graduate allegedly committed suicide in Kericho County for unexplained reasons according to the police investigating the matter.
Peter Kipngetich, 30, was found dead at the rental homes owned by his father at Kipkelion East’s Chepseon Trading Center.
“The student was set to graduate from KMTC on Thursday, December 7, 2023. We suspect that he injected himself with an overdose of anesthesia drugs,” police said.
According to police officers, the deceased told his family that he was traveling to Nairobi for his graduation.
“His father, a clinician in one of the hospitals in Kericho, handed him Ksh.15,000 to use in the ceremony,” police added.
However, the college student is said to have gone to his father’s rental houses at Chepseon where he asked for a key to one of the rooms.
“He told the security guard that he wanted to rest in one of the rooms.
The guard obliged and gave him the key.”
His body would later be found in the room with a syringe in his arm.
The body was taken to Lipton Central Hospital mortuary pending investigations.
