Police have confirmed that a form three student was found dead at a lodging in Narok.

The girl said to have been a student from Kisiara Secondary School is claimed to have died while trying to procure an abortion.

The areas chief Titus Tonui noted that a man, who is believed to be the girl’s boyfriend and who lives in the same area that the body was found reportedly disappeared after the incident.

The unidentified girl’s body is said to have been moved to Kapkatet Hospital mortuary.

This incident comes on the day when human rights activist Caroline Mwatha is being laid to rest following her death.

Ms Mwatha was claimed to have also succumbed from excessive bleeding that was caused as she tried to procure an abortion.

Human rights activists and feminists have since been advocating for the government to legalize safe abortion as a way of reducing the deaths of mothers, but their quests have always been met by harsh criticisms.

In a separate incident, last year, the Narok County Government proposed a controversial move to have secondary school girls checked for signs of female genital mutilation and pregnancy.

Narok County Commissioner George Natembeya also issued a stern warning that men who impregnate school girls would be prosecuted and the victims taken to a rescue center.

The county boss further noted that county officials would work with international police (Interpol) in the hunt for suspects who flee outside the country.

That move is yet to be implemented.
