An employee of PricewaterhouseCoopers, PwC died Friday after jumping from the 17th floor of its Delta House Office building in Westlands, Nairobi.

According to Standard Digital, the man, Stephen Mumbo was before his death, the Assistant Manager of Executory and Forensic Investigations in PwC. Police reports say he landed on the balcony of the second floor, though he did not die on the impact. He was later pronounced dead at the Aga Khan Hospital upon arrival.

In an email by Peter Ngahu, PwC’s regional senior partner, “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.”

This comes weeks after a popular and successful Angolan entrepreneur of French nationality, Gotran Diamo, popular known as Godiamo committed suicide. Godiamo jumped off the 10th floor of the Brickwell city Building in Miami, Florida. Before his death, he left a suicide note on Instagram accusing his friends of causing his death.

Police have opened investigations into the incident. “Investigations over the matter have started and we shall get to the bottom of the matter,” Michael Muchiri, Kilimani OCPD said.
