Thursday, June 4, 2020 – A female doctor has died after she threw herself in front of a speeding lorry on the Kajiado-Namanga Road in an apparent case of suicide.
Eunice Kinuthia, 57, who is a retired medic died on the spot, a few meters from Kajiado Police Station.
The deceased used to work as a Medical Doctor at Kajiado County Referral Hospital.
The driver of the lorry, identified as Dennis Owino, said he was heading to Ilbisil area from Kajiado, when the woman attempted to jump in front of the vehicle.
“When I spotted her, I slammed the brakes on.”
“She held on to one of the side mirrors.”
“The braking impact, given the vehicle was in high speed, threw her off, killing her on the spot,” said Owino.
According to eye-witnesses, the deceased was seated quietly on the guard-rails since morning and appeared to be in deep thoughts.
Her body was taken to Kajiado County Referral Hospital morgue as investigations continue.
