KCSE student dies after hit and run accident

A Form Four KCSE student in Trans Nzoia County died on Wednesday night after he was involved in a hit-and-run accident.

Kevin Erot, a student at AIC Chematic Secondary, Cherangany, was reportedly headed to a neighbour’s house to collect revision material when he was knocked down at Maili Saba, along Kitale-Kapenguria road.

The driver sped off leaving him writhing in pain. A good Samaritan rushed him to hospital but died hours later.

The principal of AIC Chematic Secondary School mourned Erot as a “young and brilliant mind.” He further added that they were forced to counsel the remaining 63 candidates in the school following Erot’s death.

A resident said that the area is notorious for hit-and-run cases.
