A student who sneaked into neighbourhood school’s dormitory lynched in Kenya

On Thursday, a 17-year-old student at Gathiruini Boys Secondary School in Kiambu County was lynched by girls from a neighbouring school.

The form four students had, together with five others, sneaked out of their school and crept into a girls dormitory at Komothai girls secondary school at around 4 am today.

Undercover of darkness, they had tiptoed into Phoebe House for an unknown mission before they were spotted by some girls who immediately raised the alarm, attracting the whole school.

The school’s guards, teachers, and students all rushed towards the dormitory to find out what was happening.

On sensing danger, five of the boys managed to trace their way back to their school while the angry students and staff cornered the deceased.

Sadly, they descended on him, causing him life-threatening injuries.

The boy later succumbed to his injuries at Kigumo level IV hospital.

“Crime scene detectives later visited the scene and recovered planks of wood suspected to have been used to assault the suspect,” said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

Police cautioned the public members against taking the law into their hands.
