By Lewis Njeri
The Daystar community is mourning the sudden death of Daniel Baronjo, a fourth-year Community Development major whose body was found lifeless in his Kryptons Apartments house on December 8.
The cause of his death is currently unknown as investigations are still in place with an official communication expected to be issued later today. Athi River Campus Governor Walter Nalwa has urged students and others who were close to him to remain calm and allow authorities to conduct their proceedings for the cause of death to be established.
“The best we can do is to pray for our fellow comrade to be in a better place up there with the Lord. His family should as well be comforted during this trying times and supported,” stated Nalwa.
According to DeshCare International CEO Dennis Mavia; an alumnus of the institution and resident of Kryptons, the deceased’s body was found lying motionless on his bed. “I tried waking him up but he was really asleep and cold and that was around 5:30 heading to 6:00 and currently we do not know the cause of the death.”
The hostel’s caretaker describes the deceased as a polite tenant who had no problem with any of his neighbors. “Boronjo moved in here on 1st of October and I have known him to have been a polite person and I have never received complaints from anybody since he never had issues with anyone”.
Krypton’s management sends its condolences and has assured to follow up on what really happened.
