A university student has reportedly taken his own life after he lost a Champions League bet last Saturday.
A man has committed suicide following Liverpool’s loss to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final played in Kiev on 26th June.
The Tanzanian man identified as Moses Mashaka, a university student, took his life away after Madrid beat The Reds 3-1 to be crowned champions for the third consecutive time.
While confirming the report, Mbeya Police Comander Musa Kaibu revealed that the deceased was a second year student at the St.Augustine University of Tanzania.
According to police reports, Mashaka had placed a bet on the game, predicting that Liverpool will be crowned champions.
However, things did not go as planned as Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale capitalized on two errors by Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius to earn Los Blancos the trophy.
The bachelor’s degree in education student was discovered by his landlady who informed the police.
Commander Kaibu urged students to stop using their parent’s money on matters unrelated to education, as they (parents) end up dealing with the consequences of their actions.
