Bondo: Student drowns in water pan

By Isaiah Gwengi | December 9th 2020 at 14:03:36 GMT +0300

 A Form Four student drowned at a water pan in Obede village, Siaya County on Tuesday.

Festus Odhiambo Otieno, 20, who was a student at Mitiro Secondary school had gone to fetch water at around 7.30 am when he met his untimely death.

A neighbour who only identified herself as Monica, said the deceased who was epileptic, is suspected to have been struck while at the water pan before he fell and drowned.

She stated they discovered the incident when only one out of the three donkeys that he had gone to fetch water with, returned home and the other two were missing.

Monica said that this prompted the boy’s grandmother to send some of his siblings to go and look for him, only to find his body floating in the water.

The children raised an alarm before the area Assistant Chief Alfred Oyola called the police.

His body was taken to Bondo Sub-county hospital mortuary.
