Livingstonia University student dies due to binge drinking

A third year student at Livingstonia University in Rumphi has died after drinking beer excessively on an empty stomach, Malaiw Police have confirmed.

While confirming the development to Nyasa Times, Rumphi Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) Tupeliwe Kabwilo identified the deceased as Emmanuel Phiri from Nkhoma Village   in Lilongwe  district .

“He was a third year student at the University and it is believed that the deceased was a habitual drunkard who used to take alcohol on an empty stomach,” said Kabwilo.

According to sketchy details, on October 10 2018, Phiri spent the whole day drinking beer without eating anything and later in the evening he fell ill.

“He became unconscious due to nose and mouth bleeding. This forced his fellow students with assistance from Lecturers to take him to Gordon Mission Hospital where he later suddenly died in the process of  getting blood transfusion,” said the Police Publicist.

Postmortem conducted revealed that the death was due to ‘Hypoglycemia’.

Police are therefore warning the general public particularly the youth to quit the behaviour of excessive drinking or avoid taking alcohol on an empty stomarch as a measure of reducing similar cases in the future.

Yes the guy gave up the ghost due to hunger and not beer, he would have died earlier but the beer gave him some sustenance to hold on for some time. osamayipisa mbiri ya mowa.

Students at Livingstonia university take too much alcohol. They hardly attend classes. There is one Josephy Tembani Blair Mwinuka Mwafulirwa he has been studying at this university for four years now but he is still in second year first semester. He hardly finishes a semester. He drinks, fights and gets suspended. He fails exams and has to repeat courses. I agree with you Honourable most students are just wasting parents money at this institution.
