14 Pupils Killed in a Stampede

By Rose Aboka

On Monday, 3rd of February was a sad day in Kenya.  The stampede that took place in the evening killed 14 kids, and left 39 kids injured. The 39 pupils were rushed to Kakamega County Referral Hospital. Doctors appealed for blood donations.

The investigation is ongoing, however, it is reported that the bell commanding the pupils to go home had rung and they ran out of classes. The pupils stumbled on the stairs and from there came a tragedy.

It hurts for a parent to come face to face with a lifeless body of her child. May the families of the departed find comfort in the Lord. May their souls rest in eternal peace.
