A Form Four student at Chebororwo Girls’ Secondary School in Elgeyo-Marakwet County has committed suicide.
The student, who is sitting for the 2018 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), killed herself Thursday due to a deteriorating health, a suicide note which she wrote shows.
The student ended her life by hanging.
Shortly after completing her Biology examination, the student went to the dormitory, where she tied a bed sheet to the rafters, and used it to hang herself.
Confirming the incident, Elgeyo-Marakwet County police boss, Kennedy Kimani, said other Form Four students found her body dangling from the bed sheet.
The girl’s body was moved to Iten County Referral Hospital mortuary.
