A first-class graduate, Michael Kibet, has allegedly taken his own life over unemployment in Chepsangor, Nandi County, Kenya. Kibet, a graduate of Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), is said to have committed su*cide at his brother's compound in Lessos after searching for employment opportunities in vain. The 26-year-old graduated with a First Class honours degree in ICT and Telecommunication from the Juja-based institution in 2021 having also scored A plain from Meteitei Boys High School in Tinderet Nandi.

Area Chief David Rugut confirmed the incident on Wednesday, June 7, 2023, saying the deceased hanged himself outside his brother's house out of frustration. He said the family had lost not only a bright student but a dependable professional in the entire Chepsangor location.

"We are really saddened by the loss of Michael. He was a hardworking and disciplined boy in our location. He ended his life out of frustration according to his brother," Rugut said. The deceased hoped to secure employment immediately after his studies after graduating top of his class. "The locals were really shocked by his demise. Many didn't believe as he has been a very humble boy and very responsible," the chief said. Until his death, Kibet was living with his mother a retired nurse and single mother, who has been educating her children alone after the death of her husband.

"It is really difficult to tell what could be the major contributor to Kibet's death as his parents really laid a good foundation for them educationally, it is really sad losing such a vibrant young man," he added. The body of the deceased was moved to Samaritan Funeral Home in Kapsabet as funeral preparations continue. He will be laid to rest on Friday, June 9, 2023.

Su*cide cases have been on the rise in the country with experts blaming stress and depression for the trend. "We didn't know he was going through issues. Whenever he was facing a problem, he would tell us," a relative, who sought anonymity, told K24 Digital.
