Kisumu man dies after throwing self in front of moving bus following fight with girlfriend


A middle-aged man died on Thursday night after he threw himself in front of an oncoming bus at Kachok area on the Kisumu-Nairobi highway.

The man, who is yet to be identified, jumped from a footbridge constructed near Lions High School.

Reports claim the man had earlier Thursday quarreled with his girlfriend.

Eye witnesses say the now-deceased timed a speeding Nairobi-bound bus and threw himself in front of it at 10pm. The vehicle crashed the man to death, completely disfiguring him.

The incident caused a traffic snarl-up on the busy road.

The deceased was moved to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary.
