Tragedy struck when a Zimbabwean student died in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia after allegedly jumping from a residential high-rise building in a suspected case of suicide.
The deceased Zimbabwean student has been identified as Tawanda Mafukidze. He was a student at Malaysia’s MAHSA University, a private medical university in Petaling Jaya.
It is not clear why the student took his own life.
On Wednesday, one of his lecturers at the MAHSA University, Khaarmeyni Jumbulingam frantically searched for Tawanda Mafukidze’s emergency contacts.
This was after he made a series of posts on Mafukidze’s Facebook page, in which he expressed an urgent need for information about his parents, relatives, and close friends.
The university lecturer wrote in three separate posts, all made within 15 minutes of each other,
“Anyone knows his mum, can pm me urgently.”
“I need Tawanda’s emergency contact.”
“I’m his lecturer at MAHSA university -his siblings or his close friend -can text me urgently.”
