Over the past few days, Mukumu Girls Secondary school has been on the spot following the death of two students under unclear circumstances.
Preliminary investigations indicate that the two girls were among at least 30 students receiving treatment at various health facilities in Kakamega after an outbreak of malaria in the institution.
Some parents claimed that their children arrived home complaining of fever, stomach ache and fatigue when schools closed last week.
One of the victims identified as Nicole, died while receiving treatment for malaria. It is alleged that she had a pre-existing condition.
According to reports, the Ministry of Education has ordered investigations into the mysterious deaths of the two students.
The investigation team has been assigned to speak to teachers, students and other workers at the school.
This follows the outcry of the parents who asked the government to investigate the matter. Some parents have been registering their displeasure with the school.
It is alleged that the school Principal has not communicated the same to parents despite the rising death cases of students.
