Emotional send-off for High School student killed in Komothai Girls’ School
It was an emotional send-off for Brian Mbage, a 17-year-old Gathiruini Boys’ High School student who was killed in a nearby Komothai Girls’ School.
Mbage, a Form Four student, was laid to rest at his parents’ home in Ngegu, Kiambu, in an emotional send-off.
Stephen Waweru, a former Gathiruini Boys’ School student, believes the Ministry of Education and the School should accept responsibility for the slain student’s untimely death.
“We should not lose our students while in school, it is the responsibility of the Ministry of Education through the School, to provide security and care for the students, while in school”, said waweru.
Mbage was with five other students who snuck to nearby Komothai Girls before being beaten to death.
Five others were able to flee and have since been detained.
In a eulogy read on behalf of the Gaithiruini Principal, Mwarichia Keimenyi, by his Deputy, Yonha Obwoge, the School Administration, Board of Management, Parents Association, Teachers, and Non-Teaching Staff stated that the School Administration, Board of Management, Parents Association, Teachers, and Non-Teaching Staff will cooperate with the family and relevant government agencies until justice is served.

The students were among hundreds of Mbage’s family, friends, and teachers who came to pay their respects at the funeral, which began at 9 a.m.
