A Meru Family is seeking justice for their 29 year old kin who allegedly Jumped from the fourth floor of an apartment she shared with her boyfriend in Kasarani.

It was alleged that on February 21, 2023 Brenda Kawira had a quarrel with her boyfriend and she proceeded to jump 50 feet to her death.

The only witness in the suicide claim was her boyfriend and who confessed that they had quarrelled.

He alleged that Ms Kawira, in a fit of rage, stormed out of the bedroom situated on the fourth floor of the rental apartment, went to the balcony and jumped.

The man told the police that he heard a thud and proceeded to look for her in other rooms. He then went to the balcony and saw her on the ground.

"I went to check for her in the sitting room, kitchen and in other rooms and she was nowhere to be seen. I then decided to go to the balcony and I saw her body sprawled on the ground floor."

A police report of the incident indicates that the boyfriend called several neighbours who assisted him in rushing her to Uzima Hospital on Thika Road where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Physical examination deduced visible injuries and bruises on her face. The autopsy report later showed bruises on her right thigh, the left side of the neck, the left cheek and the legs.

In her death, her relatives, friends and police officers who spoke to Nation.Africa last week expressed a strong need to relook into the chronology of events that ended the life of Ms Kawira.

Some of her relatives said they also have reservations about how police were quick to declare the death a suicide.

"We want Interior CS Prof Kithure Kindiki and Inspector General of police Mr Japheth Koome to help us put her death in the right perspective."

In September 2021, the late Kawira graduated with first-class honours from the University of Nairobi where she was pursuing a degree in medical biochemistry specialising to become a geneticist.

Before her death, She had won a scholarship to pursue a Master’s degree in Australia and would have left the country in June 2023.
