A form four student from Chinga Boys High School in Nyeri allegedly committed suicide on Monday night.
According to the school principal Kiringo M’eringo, it is still not clear what could have led him to take his own life.
Deputy Sub County police commander Boniface Wakhanu confirmed that the boy was discovered with a bed sheet tied around his neck but added that there was no suicide note found.
The students reportedly went to bed as usual after their evening preps and it was then that the boy took his own life.
The students whose details are still unclear because the family had not yet been notified is said to have been an average student who was well behaved.
Other students in the same dormitory had to spend the night in the cold of the classroom as the dormitory became condemned off.
