A class seven pupil is said to have committed suicide after his parents allegedly declined to let him go watch the UEFA Champions League finals.
Residents of Suba North constituency were left in a rude shock after Mavin Ochieng Okuku, a pupil at Ramba Primary School, reportedly hanged himself.
He was found with a trouser tied around his neck inside the house where he was sleeping on Saturday night.

The body was discovered by his mother who went to wake him up.
