A sombre mood has engulfed residents of Kiminini in Trans Nzoia County after a grade three pupil at GerHellen Creative ECDE Centre died after taking Githeri.

Confirming the incident is the Sirende Sub-Location Assistant Chief, Esther Waswa, who said that Joshua Bunguswa, the deceased, died some moments after being discharged from a medical facility in the area following a suspected food poisoning.

According to a school worker who requested anonymity, the school's director had also ate the same food and developed stomach problems.
