Sad:Nyakemincha Secondary School Closed Over Mysterious Death Of A Student

BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,26TH MAY,2022-St. Peter’s Nyakemincha Secondary School has been closed indefinitely following the mysterious death of a Form Three student whose body was discovered in a nearby river on Sunday.

The school’s Principal Leonard Murungi said he took the decision to close the school so as to end anxiety among learners and allow police investigations.

“I have sought permission from the ministry of education to allow me to close early for half term break to allow the anxiety of the parents and teachers to end before the students report back on 30th May,” said Murungi.

The body of the Form Three boy was discovered by a passerby in a shallow river adjacent to the school.

According to Murungi, the boy did not have any indiscipline or health history.

He said that the student was unwell on May 17 but was treated at Kinara hospital in Nyamira town and discharged after complaining of fever symptoms.

“The student has been well-behaved and does not have any history of sickness since he reported three years ago. We are equally shocked on what could have happened to the student but we leave all the matter to the investigating agencies to unravel the cause of the mysterious death,” added Murungi.

According to the deceased’s colleagues, he was last seen on Sunday morning when they had woken up for morning personal devotion before attending the Catholic mass at the school.

His body was found in the river later that evening.
