In the latest case, a sombre mood has engulfed residents of Kiminini village, Trans Nzoia County after a grade four student committed suicide under unclear circumstances.

The said student from Sirende primary school, was found dangling from the roof of their house where he was living.

The Kiminini OCPD Joseph Tumbo, claimed that the student might have taken his own life after he differed with his father.

Reports indicate that the boy had been assigned by his father to do some chaos which he didn't want to perform.

This prompted the boy to leave to unknown place before he returned home. Confirming the incident, mr Joseph Tumbo asked parents to look proper ways of dealing with their children.

The body of the deceased has been moved to Kitale county hospital mortuary. May his soul rest in peace.
