Mother Of Girl Who Died At School Sends Emotional Appeal To Uhuru.
Martha Wanjiro, the mother of Ebbie Noelle, a former student of Gatanga CCM School in Muranga County, was overcome with emotion during an interview.
The distraught mother has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to intervene in the ongoing investigation into her daughter’s death.
“I need the help of my President, Uhuru Kenyatta, the one I cast my vote for, for the sake of truth and justice. This case cannot disappear, no matter what,” she stated.
Wanjiro recalled her daughter’s death on March 9, 2019, under controversial circumstances in an interview conducted on Monday, March 28.
Wanjiro claimed that her daughter died at school and that the administration plotted to cover up the death.
“I had people calling me posing as DCI and asking me to fuel their to enable them to investigate the case.
Wanjiro claimed that the investigators were dragging the case out, causing her family emotional distress. She also claimed that unidentified individuals were taking advantage of the situation to steal her money.
"The authorities create fake stories to manage your psychology. Those strategies affect your emotions and remind you of the pain,” the distraught mother told the interviewer, Lynn Ngugi.
She also urged the President to reform the education sector, noting that many families were in similar situations.
“I need the president of this country to up his game. I know he is just about to retire but he can effect changes needed. Some agendas or projects are started by retiring presidents and completed by their successors,” she explained.
“You take your child to school, facilitate their education only to die in the institutions. Surely? Won’t it be better to let them stay at home then?” Wanjiro lamented.
The Form One student died as a result of a head injury caused by a blunt object, according to postmortem results from 2019.
The Muranga Police Commander, Josephat Kinyua, then revealed that an investigation into the case had been launched.
The student was said to have fallen from the decker on February 28, 2019, a week before her death.
“The matter was not brought to the attention of the administration since there were no injuries,” Kinyua stated then.
