Cases of students losing their lives after and before exams are increasing each and every day. What is the pain the parents face when they get such information?
It is so sad. But why do they loose their innocent lives in this manner after all the investments from the parents for all those years then it turns out this way.
A student at Gesiaga secondary school in Nyamira has died soon after completing his Maths paper.
The candidate collapsed immediately after completing the test on Monday.
His father Joshua Ongaga, who is a teacher at a local primary school, said his son had a history of heart complications.
“My son has a heart problem and we have been taking him for medication, his last session being at The Mater hospital in Nairobi,” he said.
The deceased’s body was taken to Kinara hospital mortuary awaiting post-mortem to establish the exact cause of death.
He was among 192 candidates at the school who are sitting for this year’s KCSE examination.
At least 664,585 candidates wrote their Mathematics paper on Monday morning with the Chemistry exam scheduled for the afternoon.
Last week a student in Homa Bay was hit by lightning to death. Also before exams several cases were reported of deaths before the start of KCPE exams.
Also the rate of pregnancies among students has been on the rise until the Ministry of Education through, CS Amina Mohamed have ordered the ministry to start investigations of the increased pregnancy rates in schools.
