PwC's regional senior partner Peter Ngahu in an email to staff confirmed the death.

“We are all in a state of shock and disbelief. Our collective grief and sense of loss at this time is profound; but it cannot compare to what Steve’s family must be feeling. Our hearts and prayers go out to them,” he said. 

Kilimani OCPD Michael Muchiri said Mumbo died of injuries at Aga Khan Hospital.

He added that they were treating the matter as a suicide.

Photos circulated on-line indicate the plunge was broken before ground zero which would explain why he died in hospital.
