The decomposing body of a Chuka University student was on Sunday found hanging from a mango tree near the men's hostel.

Michael Gikonyo, a second-year computer science student, is the second from the same class and varsity to commit suicide in less than two weeks.

His classmate Kevin Warui committed suicide barely two weeks ago. Chuka/Igambang’ombe OCPD Barasa Sayia said Gikonyo's body was found by an outsider.

A roommate said Gikonyo had not been seen since last Wednesday and had not been reachable on phone.

He said Gikonyo had once threatened to commit suicide.
