A Class Six pupil is reported to have committed suicide on Sunday evening at Kimatisio village in Chepalungu, Bomet County.
The body of the 13-year-old boy was found hanging from the roof in his parents house with a piece of cloth tied around his neck.
Confirming the incident, area chief David Marusoi said it could not be immediately established why the boy killed himself.
“Everyone was away during the incident, his grandfather noticed the body dangling on the roof, he raised an alarm alerting the neighbours,” said the chief.
Police said they were waiting for his parents to calm down so that they can record a statement on the incident.
The boy’s body was moved to Longisa Hospital mortuary.
This comes barely a month after a 13-year-old girl at Kabiangek Primary School in Bomet committed suicide after she was allegedly humiliated for having her period in class.
