Kenya Police spokesman Charles Owino said that the deceased collapsed at their residence in Kasabuni estate after he was caned by his uncle.

Police have organized with the examination invigilators to allow the suspect sit for his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations at the Ruaraka police station where he is being held in custody.

The body has been transferred to the City Mortuary. A post-mortem will be done on Friday to establish the exact cause of death.
