Was it suicide or murder attempt? conflicting theories emerge
Two conflicting theories have emerged on his death, putting police to task in a bid to unravel the truth.
Reports indicate that a worker at the building saw Mumbo struggling to hold on to the window before screaming as he plunged to death- an indication that someone may have been involved.
Kilimani OCPD Michael Muchiri divulged that “it is still too early to make a conclusion but we are also looking at the prospect of whether there was some involvement”.
It is said that Mumbo who works on the 12 floor was on the 17 th floor alone from where he fell to his death.
Another narrative fronted is that Mumbo may have committed suicide with Kilimani police boss stating that “There are very strong links that it was a suicide but this is just in theory”.
Preliminary investigations however show that the deceased had not exhibited any characteristics associated with suicide victims, and give credence to the theory that something else may have caused the fall.
Mumbo served as an Assistant Manager at the Forensics department of the firm. In their lie of duty, forensic auditors often come across sensitive information as they dig and find fraud in company accounts.
A statement from the firm’s Senior Regional Partner Peter Ngahu read in part that “Steve fell off 17th floor early this morning. Investigations are ongoing by relevant authorities”.
Little information has been forthcoming from the audit firm on the personality of the deceased and what really transpired at PWC offices at on Friday.
