The woman who died alongside IEBC’s ICT director Chris Msando had just completed her three months attachment at the Naivasha Sub-County hospital.
Medics who knew Carol Ngumbu (alias Maryanne) during her internship, say they are still reeling in shock following her death.
“She was reserved, cool and amiable…it was hard to pick her out from the rest,” said a medic, who interacted with her at the nutritional department.
“She was among students whose performance we assessed in the month of May and her ratings were okay,” the Nation quoted another county hospital employee, who sought anonymity.
Another unidentified employee described her as “an introvert”, that she rarely mingled freely with others.
“When through with her day duties, she would quietly slip away,” said the medic.
Ms Ngumbu, 21, was a nutritional student and had just completed her studies at the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) Karen Campus and was hoping to graduate in December.
The Medical Superintendent in charge of the Naivasha health facility, Dr Joseph Mburu, confirmed that indeed Ngumbu undertook her internship there.
“She was among the student on attachment commonly referred to as rural experience programme,” he said.
Mburu went on to add that Ngumbu successfully completed the attachment programme and had since left.
Journalists traced her home to Gachie, Kiambu County.
Her body was found a few meters from where the body of Msando lay at Muguga Forest, Kikuyu Sub-county. According to eye witnesses, she had no visible injuries and her clothes were missing save for her underwear.
