KCSE candidate collapses and dies in the middle of his English exam.

Minutes after the start of the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination, a candidate collapsed and died.

Victor Kipkoech Mutai, a student of Chilchila Secondary School in Kipkelion West constituency, passed out in the middle of his English exam.

The candidate was pronounced dead at Fort-Ternan Sub-county Hospital, where he was sent for treatment, according to County Commissioner John Kamua Karungo.

“We are yet to know from the candidate’s family if he was suffering from any health condition which could have caused his demise,” he said.

According to the county commissioner, the KCSE candidate did not show any signs of illness prior to the start of the examination.

Karungo said the rest of the candidates at the school are undertaking their examinations as the information of the incident is being properly managed not to cause anxiety among other students.
