A family in Oloishobor area of Kajiado West is in mourning after their 15 year-old daughter hanged herself to death after finding out she is pregnant.
A Road Construction site in Kimuka.
The girl, who was expected to join Class 8 at Kimuka Primary School today, took her life after she found out she was pregnant.
Police in Ngong confirmed the death and said the minor hanged herself at their home in Oloishobor on the eve of New Year.
“Yes it is true, it happened and investigations have revealed she was pregnant. We have information she took her life after her boyfriend went under after receiving information she was pregnant,” said a senior officer.
We could not establish if the police will hunt down the alleged boyfriend who made her pregnant and charge him for statutory rape (sexual relation involving someone below the age of consent).
In Kenya statutory rape is referred to as defilement and is a serious offense which may attract life sentence in courts of law.
This happened days after a Form 4 leaver took his life in a similar manner in Kiserian area minutes before the release of KCSE for fear he would not get an ‘A’ like his elder brothers.
