Agumbi was a student at UoN’s Lower Kabete campus.

She was found dead in Gigiri on

November 22, 2014 after suffering diabetic hypertension and respiratory failure.

While freeing Singleton, Ongudi pointed out that the prosecution failed to call crucial witnesses.

The Briton had been accused of murdering his girlfriend by flushing her life-saving medication for diabetes down the toilet.
