Social media err provided a platform to connect, share and help each other directly despite the distances.
Sadly technology became corrupt and nowadays people mishandle the opportunity by sharing things which affect others.
A lady by the name Brenda Akinyi is a recent victim of cyber bullying that unfortunately led to her demise.
The 29-year old lady posted news of her daughter’s situation after she was assaulted by a man. A police officer who had opted to help her catch the man demanded for sexual favors before delivering any help and Brenda felt for it.
Social media users ganged up on her after sharing the story. They called her names and disgraced her for giving in to the cop for help.
Akinyi immediately suffered from depression following the attacks on social media and the condition aggravated.
She was run by a car on the busy Waiyaki way and died on the spot. Akinyi was a medical student in the University of Nairobi. She left behind a three year old daughter. R.I.P Brenda Akinyi.
