News hitting the headlines is that a young girl ,from Migori county,who has sat for the recent Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) has just taken her own life after failing to perform better in her second attempt at the exam.
The young girl,identified as Carren Ouma, wrote her first Form Four exams in 2016 and scored a C minus (C -) at Osingo Secondary in Migori County.
She was not happy with the score and decided to take one more stab at the KCSE tests.
Carren believed she had the potential of making it to university and pulled all stops to achieve her dream.
She went to the extent of changing schools— from Osingo Secondary to a Kuria-based institution.
She wrote the exams in November and had high hopes of scoring C+ and above when Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i released the results on Wednesday.
Like the rest of the candidates who wanted to know their fate, Carren was restless.
She spent hours chasing her results online and offline.
She sent SMSes and even logged on to Kenya National Examinations Council website just to know how she had performed.
After getting her results, her hopes were shuttered on realizing that she had not performed any better— she had maintained her C minus grade.
For this, she committed suicide, according to her parents and the local chief.
Carren, Osingo Location Chief Mwai Odila told the Nation, jumped into a well located in their homestead on Wednesday night.
