Details have emerged on how Stephen Mumbo, the PWC manager who fell to his death at the company’s offices in Delta Towers spent his day.
The deceased reported to work as usual and proceeded to the boardroom located on the 17 floor of the building.
He had reportedly made prior arrangements to work from the 17th floor and not from the 12th floor.
Initial investigations reveal that he was in high spirits as usual and did not exhibit any signs of being troubled, a characteristic shown by most suicide victims.
Until his death, Stephen Mumbo was a senior forensic detective at PWC rising to the position of Assistant Manager at the Forensics department of the firm.
Prior to his engagements with the audit firm, the deceased had worked with several companies and built a successful career that is the envy of many.
Until 2016, he worked as a consultant at NASFAM, a Malawian small holder farmers company.
His career began at Pleng Limited, a consultancy firm, between March 2003 and April 2005 where he served as a design engineer for structures.
Away from the suicide theory, police are also keen on establishing if there was anyone else in the room in what could point to a murder.
According to The Standard, a worker at the building reported that said he saw Mumbo struggle to hold on to the window before screaming as he hurtled down to his death.
