Details of the suicide are still sketchy but many await a statement from the family of the young boy who was a student at the popular Kericho High School.

It has emerged that the young boy might have taken his life after reports that he had been having issues with his father over his grades.

The Former Prime Minister of Kenya, Raila Odinga, has this evening issued out a statement to the family of David Ole Sankok following the death of his son at their home in Narok.

"Hon. David Ole Sankok, it is very painful to experience the loss of a child, and even more so, difficult having to have to bury one; we stand with you during this very difficult period of time.

Please accept these condolences from Mama Ida Odinga and I. May our God grant your entire family fortitude in this difficult moment.

We are praying for you, Hon. Sankok."

The statement from Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga thus read after he updated it on his Official Social Media Handle this evening.
