“He was not killed by a mob,” mother to Form Four student killed after “sneaking” into girls’ school claims

In Summary

  • Mother to Form Four student who was allegedly killed at a girls’ school claims she was told of a different scenario.
  • The deceased, Brian Mbage allegedly sneaked into Komothai Girls’ School along with five other males.

The mother to a 17-year-old student who allegedly succumbed to injuries after a mob beating says she was told of a different story by the school.

DCI claims the deceased, Brian Mbage, a student at Gathirui-ini Boys High School in Kiambu County sneaked into Komothai Girls’ School.

During the Thursday incident, Mbage alongside five other male students crept into one of the girls’ dormitories identified as Phoeb House at around 4 am. Their intention is yet to be established.

Some girls who spotted them raised alarm, attracting teachers, guards and other staff to the scene.

“On sensing danger, five of the boys managed to trace their way back to their school while the deceased was cornered by the angry students and staff,”DCI adds.

Student’s “tragic fall”

The student was allegedly assaulted using planks of woods causing him serious injuries. He died hours later at Kigumo Level IV Hospital.

Mbage’s mother, Mary Mbage however claims the school’s management told her of different events leading to her son’s death.

“The school’s management told me that the boy jumped from the fourth floor and that’s how he sustained the injuries,” Mbage adds.

Crime scene detectives allegedly recovered planks of wood suspected to have been used to assault the suspect.

After viewing his body at Kiambu Level V Hospital where an autopsy is underway, she dismisses the mob attack story altogether.

“I have seen the body of my son, and I am so saddened. The injuries on his body do not show any signs of beatings, but the ones on his head show he died from trauma,” she says.

Mbage describes her son as “hardworking, disciplined and jovial.”

Githunguri Deputy OCPD George Kipkoros says DCI detectives have taken up the case.
