Meanwhile, police in Migori County, have launched investigations after a Form Three student at Bande Girls Secondary School took her own life on Sunday.

According to a police incident report, the 15-year-old girl attended a church service within the school premises alongside other students.

However, she discreetly left the church service while it was still ongoing and her lifeless body was found inside a classroom.

Police further said that the student had left a suicide note explaining that she had chosen to end her life due to harassment she had been enduring from one of the school prefects.

Her remains were taken to Migori Level Four Hospital mortuary, where an autopsy will be conducted as part of the ongoing investigation.

This tragic incident follows another distressing event just a week earlier when a Grade Four pupil took his own life in a classroom at Sare Primary School in Migori County.
