Mysterious deaths in schools, two students die in unclear circumstances
The family of 15-year-old Ebbie Noelle Samuels is still struggling to come to terms with her mysterious death which occurred at the Gatanga CCM secondary school last week.
The family recalls the fateful day when Martha Wanjiru, Noelle’s mother, was called by the school administration informing her that her daughter was unwell and had been rushed to hospital.
“When she got to the hospital she found out that the girl had passed on, way longer than when she was supposed be sick,” said Faith- family spokesperson.
According to the family, the school has since declined to give them information on what befell their daughter.
Citizen Digital was however able to get access of the post mortem exam report which indicated that the deceased died from head trauma after she was hit by a blunt object on the head.
“She was being profiled, because of her surname, and I got to know about this when I picked her for midterm. I heard it myself, the deputy principal saying there’s a girl claiming to be a Jamaican,” recalls Martha Wanjiru-Noel’s mother.
While her burial was being conducted, investigations began in Embu to ascertain what led to the death of yet another form two student from Kangaru high school in Embu County.
The form 2 student is reported to have succumbed to injuries he sustained after allegedly being beaten by his teacher.
Kennedy Fundi Nyaga, an orphan, is said to have met his death after being struck with a broomstick on his limbs by a teacher.
The school has not responded to these allegations, but the Embu County Director of Education Stephen Kairu said they are seized of the matter and are awaiting the outcome of the investigations before action can be taken.
