Coping with the loss of your loved one in your life can be one of the most challenging and painful experiences any human being can face. Perhaps the loss of a child can be the most devastating kind of feeling especially if it occurs prematurely.
That's the case of Mrs Hilda Achieng who is now busy in the corridors of justice seeking help after the unfortunate loss of her daughter.
It is alleged that her daughter Michelle, who was 8 years old answered a question wrongly in class and her teacher sought to hit her on the head only to kill her.
To calm down the issue, Michele's school dumped her body at Mama Lucy hospital. The school is alleged to have also tried bribing Michele's classmates with Ksh 30 each so that they could keep quiet. After a series of searches, Michele's mother discovered the body of her daughter in the morgue and the when she went to her school to protest, she was arrested and held at Kayole police station.
To add salt onto the injury, a police officer known as Victor who had been assigned to deal with Hilda's case told her that "she is young and she should go get more babies." Additionally it is alleged she has been denied autopsy report and now she doesn't know where to run to for help.
As a family, we should try to fight these kind of injustices here in Kenya so as to promote well being and peaceful coexistence in the society. We console the family of Mrs Hilda Achieng and may the innocent soul of her precious daughter rest in eternal piece.
