Dr. Lydia Wahura wrote an emotional and heartbreaking note before dying by suicide. The 35-year-old paediatrician at Kenyatta National Hospital was found dead at the backseat of her car, a Mazda Verisa, on Saturday June 12.
Reports say that she had left an ongoing MA class at the University of Nairobi that is within the hospital earlier. She then proceeded to her car where she died by suicide.
The head of security at the School of Medicine, George Onyango, reported that he spotted the body at the back seat of the deceased car. Detectives who visited the scene and recovered three syringes, a vial (small glass) of Ketamine, a drug used in inducing anaesthesia, and midazolam drugs, also used for inducing anaesthesia and sleepiness and to decrease anxiety.
“She was lying at the back seat and had injected a syringe on her left arm. Also found inside the car were vials of Ketamine and midazolam drugs,”
“We are also in possession of a printed suicide note believed to have been authored by the deceased which will also be subjected to analysis to establish if it was indeed, among other things, written by the deceased.”
