Slain Carol Ngumbu mourned by ex-colleagues
The student found dead together with IEBC ICT manager Chris Msando had just completed her three months attachment programme at the Naivasha Sub-County hospital.
Colleagues who interacted with Carol Ngumbu for the duration her attachment at the health facility are yet to come into terms with her death.
“She was reserved, cool and amiable… it was hard to pick her out from the rest,” said a colleague who interacted with her at the nutritional department.
“She was among the students whose performance we assessed in the month of May and her ratings were okay,” added the colleague who sought anonymity.
Another of her colleague described Carol as “an introvert” who rarely mingled freely during the rural experience programme.
“When through with her day duties, she would quietly slip away. She was a student of few words,” said the medic.
The nutritional student had just completed her studies at the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) Karen Campus and was due to graduate in December.
The Medical Superintendent in charge of the health facility Dr Joseph Mburu confirmed that the student undertook her attachment programme at the health facility.
“She was among the student on attachment commonly referred to as rural experience programme,” he said.
Dr Mburu said the student successfully completed the attachment programme without any hitch during her stay at the hospital.
The, 21-year-old hailed from Gachie, Kiambu County. Carol’s sister Jedida Wanjiku, in an early interview, stated they last talked on phone at around 7pm on Friday, when she (Carol) told her she was going to have a few drinks with Mr Msando.
