Students at Luora Secondary School in Homa Bay are in mourning following the passing of a colleague who took his own life after being told to repeat Form Three.
According to reports Clifford Odhiambo had expressed desire to join the armed forces after sitting for his Kenya Certificate Of Secondary Examinations (KCSE) exams.
However, his two teachers Ishmael Ngicho and Nicholas Aswani denied him a chance to join Form Four. Odhiambo reportedly rushed home and ingested a substance believed to be a pesticide. He was taken to a nearby medical facility where he passed away.
The high school student left behind a suicide in which he said that he would rather take his own life than repeat a class.
The teachers in question have been interdicted by the Ministry since repeating classes had been banned by the government.Clifford Odhiambo
