Maara Sub County Director of Education Mr Samuel Macharia told journalists that they were collaborating with the police in the investigations.

 “We don’t want to speculate on the real cause of the death until the police conclude their investigations. So, for now we believe that the boy committed suicide,” he said.


However, the boy’s guardian Ms Wanja Karuku, said there was more than what meets the eye and disputed the version that the boy committed suicide.

She refuted the allegation by police that the boy was not pleased with the school adding that he was barely a term-old in the school.

According to her, the deceased was the one who preferred to be taken there.

“The boy was very jovial when I was taking him back to school and I had also trained him and I have never heard him complain about the school. This is a total shock,” she said.

She said she had been living with the boy since he was three years old after his father died.
