A family in Kiserian is in mourning after their son who sat for this year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education allegedly committed suicide on Friday.

Mokua committed suicide moments before CS Amina Mohamed (pictured) released results.


Edgar Mokua, 19, is alleged to have committed suicide at their home minutes before Education CS, Amina Mohamed, released KCSE results in Nairobi.

Local sleuths on Saturday said they have received the results Mokua’s results from the Kenya National Examination Council which indicated he obtained a ‘C’ plain. Investigators also said his three senior brothers from top had an ‘A’, ‘A-‘and ‘A’ in their examinations.

According to his father, Elijah Nyabuto, who was away at the time, Mokua had been sent out to collect hay from a boda boda rider at the gate minutes before the results were announced.

He said Mokua collected the hay to the store and removed a rope that was used to tie it and disappeared.

“Her mother wondered where he had gone and yet the family was ready to watch the results being released on TV. She went out to search for him but could not find him,” said Nyabuto.

The Lenana School candidate was later found dangling in an upstairs family room which is still under construction within the main building.

Kiserian Police boss, Lucy Karimi, confirmed the suicide report and said investigations to determine the cause has begun.

Our effort to get school details, such examination index number, of the deceased failed to materialised as his parents were uncooperative.

At some point, an elder brother of the diseased asked journalists at the home why they wanted to cover the story.

“Is this story worth reporting, don’t you have other serious things to report?” asked the man, who only identified himself as brother of the deceased.

The motive behind the alleged suicide is yet to be established as the police did not find any suicide note or any suspicions from the family members.

Kiserian OCS said the body of the deceased was booked at Montezuma Mortuary.
