DRUNKARD

In Tetu, a man was found dead in a bar at Ndugamano Centre in a suspected case of the effects of alcoholism.

Munene Wambugu, 32, was found dead after a night of drinking with his friends.

Witnessed said he collapsed after foaming in the mouth. They wondered why his friends left him in the establishment at closing time.

Residents said Mr Wambugu had been a habitual drinker and that his death may have been the result of excessive intoxication.

Nyeri Central divisional police boss Paul Kuria said an autopsy will make the cause of death clear.

“The body did not have injuries and the case is fresh so it would be speculative to say it was alcohol,” Mr Kuria said.

SICK MAN

At Kiamwathi, a 49-year-old man was found dead in his bed.

The assistant chief reported the matter after he was alerted by residents in the morning.
