CBU student takes own life after drinking spree???

A 28-YEAR-OLD second year chemical engineering student at the Copperbelt University (CBU) in Kitwe has committed suicide by hanging himself to a tree after a drinking spree.
The deceased identified as Albert Mfune of house number H334, Chamboli, Kitwe was found hanging on a tree near his home in the early morning hours of yesterday.
Police sources and relatives confirmed the incident in separate interviews in Kitwe yesterday.
The deceased’s sister-in-law, Beauty Mfune, said Mr Mfune’s body was found hanging from a tree around 05:00 hours.
Mrs Mfune said Mr Mfune went back home drunk around 20:00 hours on Thursday and threatened to beat up everyone at home, for no reason.
She also said Mr Mfune allegedly squeezed his nephew’s throat but alert neighbours rescued the boy after he shouted for help.
“Albert was always a problem whenever he took some alcohol. On Thursday, around 20:00 hours, he came back home drunk and threatened to beat us all. But with the help of our neighbours, we managed to drag him outside and this morning, we were surprised to find his body hanging on  a tree just outside the house,” Mrs Mfune said.
She said her husband, a miner, was in the night shift at the time his younger brother went home drunk and started causing confusion.
Mrs Mfune said family members are surprised that Albert decided to end his life when he was almost completing his studies at CBU.
And police officers found at the scene confirmed picking up the body, which they found hanging on a tree.
