The dedicated police officer was entrusted with the responsibility of supervising the ongoing KCSE exams at Kapchepkoro Secondary School in Bomet County.

Throughout the morning session, he diligently carried out his duties. However, as the afternoon progressed, he began to experience severe chest pain, which prompted his immediate supervisor to seek guidance from the relevant authorities.

Robinson Ndiwa, the Bomet County Police Commandant, explained that, after a quick consultation, the decision was made to rush the officer to Kaplong Hospital. Simultaneously, arrangements were swiftly made to accommodate a replacement officer.

Regrettably, it was at the hospital that the officer’s life was tragically cut short. He was pronounced dead during the medical examination.

“It’s a profound loss for us. He was an exemplary officer serving at Sotik prison. Prior to the commencement of the KCSE exams, he appeared to be in good spirits, interacting with his colleagues without displaying any signs of weakness,” added Ndiwa.

In a separate incident in Chepalungu Sub-county, a student at Kipsuter Secondary School found herself taking her exams at Sigor Sub-county Hospital. This unique situation arose after she gave birth to a baby boy during the morning hours.

Additionally, two other students from Koitab Silibwet Secondary and Siongiroi Girls Schools are currently receiving medical treatment due to illness.
