Student shoots himself dead after surviving road accident

A university student shot himself dead moments after surviving a grisly road accident in Nairobi’s Loresho. Police say the deceased — Brian Kagwe — shot himself in the chest twice using his father’s gun. His mother Ms Nyambura Kagwe, said her son came home visibly disturbed having been involved in an accident a few minutes earlier with friends.

She said, Kagwe, a student at the United States International University in Nairobi had been partying in the city with his friends when they decided to drive home on Friday night.

According to police, on reaching Slip Road, Kagwe’s car was involved in an accident that left one of his friends seriously injured. The other occupants had minor injuries. Kagwe, 22, drove home at 2am restless and disturbed.

On reaching home along Kabarage Drive, he woke up his mother and explained to her what had happened. He told his mother that because the friend had been injured he saw no reason to live. “The mother says the boy was upset and unsettled.

He went to his father’s bedroom and got his gun which he used to kill himself,” said Nairobi police boss Japheth Koome. The mother was apparently in the living room when she heard gunshots and on checking what had happened, found the boy bleeding. He was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.
