Sixty students from grades six and eight; according to headteacher David Paul Kang'ethe, went on a field trip to Kinare Forest.

The two boys; both 14 years old were scheduled to take their national examinations beginning this Monday on November the 28th 2022.

This morning, the search mission has continued as they keep searching for their bodies in the dam.
