Reading Time: 1 minute

Police are investigating the circumstances that might have forced a 12-year-old boy to take away his own life in Bungoma, Western Kenya.

Prince Wafula’s body was found dangling on the roof of the house by his grandmother.

What might have driven Wafula to take such a drastic action remains a mystery.

“He had not quarrelled with anyone and in most cases, he preferred spending time alone in the house,” said a family member.

A preliminary report shows that the deceased has been residing with his maternal grandmother after her parents divorced.

The report further reveals that her mother remarried and he has been living under the care of the grandmother.

The body was taken to morgue pending autopsy.
