RIP, Reactions As Body Of Form Two Student Retrieved From Chania River

The body of a form 2 male student retrieved from river Chania at Witemere, Nyeri Town constituency.

The body of deceased only identified as Oscar, was retrieved on Sunday morning after a two-day search.

Witnesses say the student was washing his clothes at the river on Thursday afternoon and it is believed that he tripped and fell into the river.

A rescue team, includingocal divers and members of the Kenya Red Cross, retrieved the body of the student and moved it to the morgue.

The County chief confirmed that the deceased’s body was retrieved on Sunday morning in the snake-infested lake.

“It is unfortunate that the secondary school learner slipped into the river and ended up losing his life by drowning in the process,” the police officer said.

Hundreds of locals wailed as the body was retrieved from the river bed.

It was quickly wrapped in a blanket and loaded into a police van before being taken away from the scene.

The recovery ended a two-day agony for his families and friends who had been camping at the river bank since the incident happened, in line with Kikuyu traditions.
