Missing student found dead in a classroom ceiling

The decomposing body of a missing grade six student found in a classroom ceiling at Moigoiywet Primary School.

Moigoiywet Primary School in Trans Nzoia County has been closed indefinitely following the discovery of a Grade 6 student’s decomposing body in a classroom ceiling. 

The student vanished in November of last year, following the conclusion of her Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exams, according to reports.

Students at the school reported a bad stench filling the classroom when classes resumed on Monday.

Upon search they found they found the dead body in the ceiling of the classroom.

The Early Childhood Development Education (ECDE) students then reported to their teacher who sought the intervention of the head teacher and several other school management members.

Douglas Amadi, the headteacher, confirmed the incident and added that he consulted the school’s sponsor and the Ministry of Education county office on the way forward in the case. 

Amadi claimed that they ascertained that the child’s parents failed to report the matter to the police, despite being aware she was missing. 

“Yes we have indeed closed the school until Monday next week following stakeholder’s consultations that resolved to close the school to pave the way for investigations,” he noted.

The school management also organised counselling sessions for the pupils, to help them recover from trauma before planning on reopening the institution. 

Local police launched investigations into the matter to unravel the circumstances that led to the student’s death. 

“Our officers have launched investigations and are piecing together vital information to determine what exactly led to the death of the pupil and we shall leave no stone unturned,” Kiminini Sub County Police Commander John Onditi stated. 

Her body was taken to Kitale County Referral Hospital pending autopsy as the family was allowed to prepare for her burial.
