He tried to slit his throat with a knife! Chilling details of how husband to Former KU VC, OLIVE MUGENDA, committed suicide emerge.

Saturday, January 12, 2019-Chilling details of how Professor Abel Mugenda, the husband of former Kenyatta University Vice Chancellor, Olive Mugenda, committed suicide at a lavish hotel in Nyeri have emerged.

Mugenda’s family misled the public including the President that he died after a short illness.

According to well placed sources, Professor Mugenda had stayed at the hotel for four days from January 2 to January 5, when he committed suicide by jumping from the 6th floor and died on the spot.

A staff at the hotel revealed that Mugenda looked disturbed from the moment he stepped into the hotel on January 2 and booked a room.

“He was all alone most of the time and would appear in the dining hall for meals. He was mostly on phone but we would not notice something unusual,” A staff at the hotel where he committed suicide revealed.

Documents at Nyeri police station indicate that the officers received a report that a man who had booked a room at the hotel as Abel Mugenda had jumped from the 6th floor and died on the spot, information that his family has been hiding from the public and lying that he died after a short illness.

The Kenyan DAILY POST has learnt that the professor left his room at the 4th floor and went to the 6th floor where he jumped and died on the spot.

An eye-witness who saw Mugenda jump to death revealed that he tried to prevent him from taking his own life by yelling  but it was too late.

Officers who reviewed CCTV footage of what exactly happened revealed that the professor attempted to slit his throat with a knife but he chose another method of commiting suicide by jumping from the 6th floor.

Professor Abel  Mugenda, who was almost turning 66, was a professor of statistics and research at United States International University(USIU).

He will be buried next week at Thogoto in Kiambu County.
