KCSE candidate kills herself, leaves note

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.
