A 14-year-old student died after writing the Kenyan Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) on Wednesday.
Later, the incident intensified as she was transferred to Wamba Mission Hospital where she died on Wednesday morning after her parents were called.
Her death was confirmed by the Samburu County Police boss Mr Francis Kumut. Shockingly, the police boss disclosed that doctors suspected the girl had attempted an abortion before things took a tragic turn, adding that investigations had been launched into the incident.
“We received reports that the pupil was found bleeding heavily in the school’s dormitory by her matron. She was complaining of sharp stomach pains and was immediately taken to Archers Post Dispensary,” Mr Kumut told a local daily.
