Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) lecturer Professor Ezekiel Kasiera has been found dead at his Kakamega home.
Ezekiel Kasiera’s lifeless body was discovered at his Lurambi home within Kakamega county by his house help.
According to the house help, she found professor Ezekiel Kasiera unconscious in the wee hours of Thursday morning.
The house help added that the Masinde Muliro lecturer had been coughing vigorously for the better part of the night.
“When I woke up, I found the toilet he uses was dirty so I cleaned it,” said the house help as quoted by a local publication.
Ezekiel’s death comes a few days after a third-year student at the Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology (MMUST) was killed in mysterious circumstances.
Reports from the police revealed that the education student was first raped prior to being hit by a blunt object which eventually led to her death.
“This is not the first time a comrade is found dead around Lurambi, Kefinco and Tizo,” a student leader from the university claimed.
The students took to the streets on Wednesday last week to demonstrate against the attacks on their own and the rise in insecurity cases.
“Insecurity has been very high in Kefinco. This is a very sad case, you’ll find that perhaps the murdered student was the only child her parents had. We ask the police to ensure that such cases are stopped and perpetrators of such crimes are arrested,” a resident of Kakamega told a local TV station.
“Some of the security lights are not working. We even launched an official complaint at the governor’s office but nothing has been done,” a student added.
In the meantime, the criminal detectives have begun investigations in a bid to unravel what caused the death of professor Ezekiel Kasiera.
