A 17-year-old Form Four Candidate of Gathiruini Boys' High School lost his life after he was reportedly attacked for forcibly entering a dorm at Komothai Girls' High School in Githunguri, Kiambu County.
The male student who was with other five classmates had, on Wednesday night, skived out of their school and sneaked into the nearby girls school, forcing the young girls to scream for help.
George Ng'ang'a Karanja, the security boss if a firm offering security services in Komothai Girls' High School, said the female students' shouts caught the attention of the officers, different students and members of staff.
Karanja says five of the young men figured out how to get away, however the 17-year-old was cornered and beaten up by the mob at night.
"He was taken to the Kigumo Level 4 Hospital while in a critical condition. He however died upon arrival," he said.
Police visited the scene, and got a wooden log that was used by the girls that night. Investigations are in progress, police said.
