In screenshots seen by Kahawa Tungu, one of the deceased students identified as Nicole reportedly passed on due to negligence from the school.

Nicole’s parents were informed of her dwindling condition after nine days. By this time, her situation was out of control as it was too late to seek admission from school.

Another student identified as Cynthia is said to have been operated on without a second opinion hence leading to her demise. Cynthia will be laid to rest on July 12, 2022.

In both cases, the school is accused of taking too long to respond to the student’s medical needs hence reducing their chances of survival.



Parents have called on relevant stakeholders to expedite the probe into the matter and ensure the school is held accountable.
