Mugiithi artiste Kareh B demands answers over her son’s tragic death

Mugiithi artiste Mary Wangare Gioche aka Kareh B, has accused the government and Chavakali Boys High School’s management of failure to inform her about her son’s tragic death.

Kareh B’s 17-year-old son, a student at the school, met his untimely demise in a road crash after the institution released him, along with other students, for the April holiday.

“The school administration informed us via the WhatsApp platform that the students would board an Easy Coach bus. I was uncomfortable with them being released at 11pm, but there was consensus among parents,” Kareh B stated.

Kareh B also claims she has yet to receive any messages of condolences from the school or the government.

“I need answers. I’m breaking Apart. I have been a parent at Chavakali Boys for the past four years, and no one has called to inform me of my son’s death or better still condole with me,” she wrote in an emotional post.

She further questioned the role of the Education Minister and Transport & Roads Minister, urging the government to take action to prevent similar tragedies in the future.

“What measures are you putting in place to curb the accidents… do we need to resurrect Michuki,” she wrote.

In an interview with Citizen TV, the Tuirio Twega singer said she had a premonition about the accident that kept her awake past midnight on the fateful Monday.

But despite seeing posts about an accident online, she scrolled past, attributing her distress to the surge in road accidents in the country.

She got worried when the school’s WhatsApp platform was flooded with messages about the accident the following morning.

Desperate for information, Kareh B made inquiries, only to discover that survivors were given phones to contact their families.
