A 16-year-old Standard Seven pupil at Agenga Primary School in Central Kadem location, Nyatike sub County on Saturday afternoon committed suicide after she disagreed with her elder sister who caned her when she returned home late.
The deceased, Faith Ruth Ochieng, had just returned home from escorting a classmate who had visited her when her elder sister disagreed with her because she returned home late.
Central Kadem location Chief Mr Henry Odundo Sitora told Citizen Digital that the deceased in a fit of anger collected all the available drugs in their home and consumed them in an attempt to cut short her life, and when she realized that it took long for the drugs to take effect, she tried to jump into a well but was barred.
After the two failed suicide attempts, Mr Sitora said family members locked her in a kitchen as they waited for her parents to come and cool her temper, unfortunately she used a rope that was in the kitchen to hang herself.
Confirming the incident, Nyatike Police Boss Dishon Chebaka said the police have taken the body to Migori Level 4 Hospital mortuary.
Meanwhile, area chief Mr Sitora appealed to parents to handle their children with a lot of care and to give them parental guidance to avoid such incidents.
