A form four student at Orero Boys High School, Rangwe Sub County in Homa Bay County has committed suicide by hanging himself inside a toilet.

According to Homa Bay County Police Commandant Samson Olekine, the body of the deceased student was discovered hanging from the toilet’s rooftop on Tuesday morning by one of his fellow students.

Student excuses himself
It is reported that the student had excused himself to use the restroom at around 5 a.m. during the early hours of dawn. However, he failed to return to class, raising concerns among his peers. Sadly, his lifeless body was found later that morning.

It’s been revealed that the student’s father had visited the school the previous day, Monday, to discuss his son’s recent academic performance with the teachers.

This meeting is suspected to have been distressing for the student, particularly in light of the upcoming Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations.

Parent visit
“On Monday, the father of the late student visited the school where together with other teachers shared about his recent performance in the school,” Olekine said.

Efforts to reach the School Principal Dicken Bula proved futile as he could not be reached via phone.
The body of the student was moved to Homa Bay Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary awaiting postmortem.
