In Kenya, a college student has died in fight with his girlfriend’s lover whom he had found at the girlfriend’s house.
Spurned, provoked and feeling betrayed, the First-Year student at Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC), on Monday night stormed his girlfriendâs house unannounced, hoping to catch her cheating with another man.
True to his suspicion, he found his girlfriend in the arms of another man, neighbours told TheStandard publication.
The male student and his girlfriend share a compound, though are living in separate houses.
The anger that prompted him to force his way into his partnerâs house ended in a vicious fight that resulted in the death of the medical college student.
Neighbours toldÂ The StandardÂ that they heard a commotion emanating from the young womanâs house a few minutes past 9pm, with clear indicators that a physical fight was ongoing.
By the time they were accessing the scene, the KMTC student was already dead.
âWe forcibly entered the house after hearing the young woman crying while calling for help,â Mary Kemunto, a neighbour, toldÂ The Standard.
Kemunto said they found the body of the womanâs lover hanging from a rope tied to the roof, âthough parts of his feet were touching the groundâ. The other man in the ladyâs house had already escaped, neighbours said.
Police are investigating a possible murder concealed as suicide.
The KMTC studentâs body was collected from the scene by Police officers, who took it to aÂ local Hospital morgue for postmortem.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officer in Nyanchwa, who spoke toÂ The Standard, said the deceasedâs girlfriend and her alleged side-boyfriend have recorded statements.
