Detectives at Kisumu Girls probe mysterious death of Form One student
Police detectives were on Friday camped at Kisumu Girls High School following the mysterious death of a Form One student.
Kisumu Sub-County Director of Education Charles Angienda told Citizen Digital that his officers are working with police to unravel the cause of death.
According to Angienda, the deceased is reported to have woken up as usual and joined her fellow students in class for studies in the wee hours of the morning.
However, as the students left for breakfast, they realised that one of their colleagues was not standing up from her desk.
When they discovered that she she was unconscious, one of them reportedly rushed to the school matron and narrated what had happened.
A school van was dispatched and the student rushed to the county hospital that is situated a stone-throw away from the school compound.
According to Angienda, the student died at the hospital while doctors were attempting to resuscitate her.
Eye witnesses who spoke to Citizen Digital on condition of anonymity however claim that the student might have been brought to hospital when she was already dead.
Hospital authorities declined to comment on the matter until the next of kin have been informed and a postmortem conducted.
A team of Education officials are currently at the school and said they would issue a comprehensive report after investigations are completed.
