The body of a Kenya male student was found in his room apartment after an apparent suicide in Finland.
The student, who is a beneficiary of Uasin-Gishu Finland Scholarship is believed to have hanged himself on the roof in his hostel on Tuesday night.
Police said they were informed the body was hanging on a rope at the house before they moved there and confirmed the same.
Detectives said there was no suicide note found inside the house.
The body was moved to mortuary pending postmortem.
This comes after a number of the students from Uasin Gishu County who had traveled to Finland to pursue their education in various universities were deported back to Kenya for the failure of paying school fees. Parents of students facing deportation from Finland over fee arrears have threatened to sue the Uasin Gishu County Government if it does not refund the money they had paid to the devolved unit as fees, and which cannot be accounted for.
A report by the Uasin-Gishu County assembly revealed that the process of admitting students from the county to study in Finland through the Finland Scholarship Programme was flawed, and money meant for the students’ education misappropriated.
