10-year-old boy commits suicide after being denied holiday trip
A 10-year-old boy committed suicide on Wednesday morning at Ndimu village in Molo subscounty, Nakuru County.
The boy, who was a class five pupil, took his own life at their home in Ndimu village. Elburgon Assistant County Commissioner Naftali Korir said the boy hanged himself on Monday morning.
Preliminary investigations into the incident indicate that the boy committed suicide after he was denied permission to travel to Nairobi for holidays.
They are, however, looking further into the incident.
“We haven’t established yet what drove the boy to that extent but we are investigating keenly,” he said.
The body has since been taken to Elburgon Nyayo Hospital mortuary.
