Kijabe Technical Institute student student drowns in Bomet

Bomet suicide
A 20-year-old college student has drowned in a dam in Bomet County. Nahashon Yegon, a student at Kijabe Technical Institute, is suspected to have jumped into a dam on Sunday morning in Sasita village, Chepalungu sub county.

The victim’s relatives and villagers said he had been unwell and depressed before the incident.

“Yegon, who has been on medication took his usual doze of drugs before he went out. His siblings thought he had gone to answer a call of nature,” said a relative who declined to be named.

When he failed to return several hours later, a search was conducted before his body was found floating in a nearby dam.

The man’s relatives said the student had developed suicidal tendencies in the past few weeks. Divers from Bomet County government retrieved the body from the dam on Sunday afternoon.

“The body was taken to Kapkatet Sub County Hospital mortuary,” said Chepalungu Sub County Police Commander Nelson Masai.
