A form two student of Naburereya secondary school in Bungoma county, Kenya committed suicide at her boyfriend’s house after her parents reprimanded her for not reporting back to school.
Joan Wekesa,21, hanged herself at her boyfriend’s rented house at Kabula market.
The mother Praxidese Wekesa had visited the market where the girl had spent the night after receiving the information from her neighbours.
“I was told by a neighbour that Joan had spent a night with a man who works at a local concrete making company but when I come and asked her she looked at me and kept quiet,” the mother noted.
The mother then left and went back home to inform Joan’s father but unfortunately when they returned, the girl’s body was tangling on the rope.
Praxidese further noted that her daughter had abruptly refused to go to school and threatened to commit suicide if they continued to plaster her.
The body of the deceased has since been taken to Bungoma mortuary.
