A 22-year-old student at Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) was today found dead in her house under unclear circumstances.

Fouzia Adan Ibrahim, a third year student of Disaster and Management and Humanitarian Assistance was discovered by her friend who had gone to visit her at Makuti estate, Lurambi trading centre.

Maxwell Kasive is said to have discovered the deceased who has been ailing for an undisclosed disease and was under medication.

Kasive had gone to take her to hospital when he found the door locked from inside and was not opened even after knocking several times.

Fouzia had requested Kasive the previous evening to come take her to hospital as the sickness was getting serious.


However, when he saw no-one was responding, Kasive decided to break the door only to discover the lifeless body lying on the bed where he reported to the student leaders who arrived at the scene immediately.

According to Vincent Lumala, the MMUST Student Chairman who arrived at the scene said the death was a blow to MMUST fraternity adding that a month ago another student died under similar circumstances.

“We are saddened by the unfortunate death, the second in under two months. I urge everyone not to speculate for the possible cause of the demise as the investigators are on course,” said Lumala.

David Kabena, Kakamega Central Sub-county Commander who confirmed the incident said the body did not have any physical injury pointing that Fouzia might have succumbed to the illness.

He said the body had been taken to the mortuary awaiting an autopsy to establish the actual cause of death.

“We moved swiftly after being informed of the incident. Investigations are underway and a post mortem report will ascertain what caused the death of the student,” said Mr Kabena.
