A Grade Six Pupil Dead, Few Hours After Finishing The KPSEA National Exams. What Led To His Demise?

At Kirundi Primary School in Tharaka Nithi County, a candidate for the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exam passed away after being struck by a lorry. Isiah Berece, the assistant head of Kirundi Sub-Location, said that the youngster was disembarking from a pickup truck when he slipped and was run over by the rear wheels. During the Tuesday night collision, the kid passed away instantly.

As they continue their inquiries, police transferred the boy's remains to the mortuary at Marimanti Level Four Hospital.

According to reports, the Grade Six student was getting out of the truck when he unintentionally tripped, and the back wheels rolled over him in the Kamathina neighborhood, stated Mr. Berece.

After finishing the second day of examinations, according to locals who spoke to the media, the youngster walked to the neighboring Mukungi River in Karutini hamlet to put sand onto the vehicle that murdered him.

Many students load sand onto trucks to earn money they give to their parents so they may purchase food because of the starvation brought on by the protracted drought.
