24-year-old Tanzanian student commits suicide after Liverpool loses to Real Madrid in Champions league finals last weekend.
The student reportedly took his own life as he lost a bet he placed on Liverpool.
A Second Year Bachelor of Education student at St. Augustine University of Tanzania, Mbeya campus reportedly committed suicide after English football club, Liverpool, lost to Spanish giants Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final held in Kiev, Ukraine last Saturday.
According to Tanzania’s Global Publishers, the deceased 24-year-old Moses Mashaka had placed a bet on Liverpool’s win. The Merseyside club, however, lost 3 goals to 1 against the Spanish club.
It was gathered that after the match ended, Moses Mashaka tied a rope to the eaves of his room and killed himself.
Mbeya police commander Mussa Taib, who confirmed the incident, urged students to refrain from addictive gambling, urging them to appropriately use money sent to them by their parents.
In other reports, Liverpool have announced the signing of midfielder Fabinho from Monaco for a fee of €45 million (£39m/$52m) plus bonuses of up to another €5m (£4m/$6m). The move came less than 48 hours after the Reds fell to Real Madrid 3-1 in the Champions League final.
Liverpool have said the 24-year-old Brazilian’s move will complete on July 1 having completed a medical and signed a long-term deal with the club. And the midfielder says he is happy to have linked up with the Champions League runners-up, calling Liverpool a “giant of a team.”
