Boy commits suicide to avoid joining Class Eight

By James Omoro | July 8th 2021

A pupil committed suicide in Gwassi Central in Homa Bay after his family rejected his decision to stop going to school.

The pupil at God Bura Primary School in Suba Sub-county reportedly went missing from home on Friday last week only for his body to be found dangling from a tree in a bush near his parents’ home at Kimoro village.

Area chief Winnie Onyango said: “The boy had been reluctant to join Standard Eight. He may have committed suicide to avoid being registered as a candidate.”
