A Mombasa based lawyer has committed suicide by jumping from the 10th floor of the Coast regional headquarters building famously known as ‘Uhuru na kazi’.
Lawyer Sammy Anyazwa, 69 is said to have gone to the Lands offices located at the 8th floor of the government building to transact some businesses.
He later went to the 10th floor and through the window he jumped to the ground.
He did not die on the spot but was pronounced dead at a private Pandya memorial hospital where he was rushed by good Samaritans.
Mombasa Island OCPD Eliud Arumbi said it is not yet clear what triggered the lawyer to kill himself since he never showed any signs of depression nor did he leave behind any note to explain his action.
Police have launched investigations over the incident.
His body is lying at the Pandya memorial hospital morgue.
