A 50-year-old woman from Kilungu in Makueni County collapsed and died on Wednesday, September 15, while reporting her “stubborn” daughter to police.

Consolata Mutua died at the Salama Police Station, where she had dragged her daughter, whom she accused of “bad behaviour”.

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Mutua alleged that her teenage child had “tormented” her by not returning home during school holidays.

“As she begged our officers to intervene so that her daughter mends her ways, she became emotionally overwhelmed and collapsed. Police officers and a well-wisher tried to administer first aid to no avail,” said the DCI in a statement on Twitter on Thursday, September 16.

Mutua was taken to the Kilungu Sub-County Hospital, where she died while receiving treatment. Her body was moved to the facility’s morgue.

“Students are advised to be responsible and take the wise counsel offered by their teachers and parents in order to avoid such incidents in future,” advised the DCI.

“Religious leaders are equally called upon to take their rightful role in guiding and mentoring young adults, to becoming responsible adults in future.”
