A Form 2 student at Bishop Gatimu Ngandu Girls High School in Nyeri County committed suicide on Sunday morning.
Confirming the incident, Mathira West Deputy County Commissioner Charles Monari said the body of the 19-year-old girl, Joan Mumbi, was found hanging in the dormitory with a bed sheet tied around her neck.
According to the deputy county commissioner, the girl, who was a mother of one, left behind a suicide note alleging that she took her life due to pressure from her father to perform better in her studies.
In the suicide note found inside her desk in class, the girl also included her parent’s separation as a factor behind her decision to commit suicide, adding that she had also requested to be transferred to another school.
The deceased was staying with her father while her child, whom she conceived while in Class Six, was living with her mother.
She is said to have committed suicide while the rest of the students were attending morning preps and Sunday Service. The girl’s body was taken to Karatina Hospital mortuary as investigations into the incident continue.
