  • A 50-year-old mother collapsed and later died while reporting her 19-year-old daughter to police officers on Thursday, September 16.

    A statement by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) indicated that Consolata Mutua had frogmarched her daughter to the station accusing her of bad behaviour. 

    Mutua narrated that the student had tormented her when she failed to go home during the school holidays.

    As Mutua was narrating the incident and begging officers to intervene and ask her daughter to mend her ways, she became emotionally overwhelmed and collapsed.

    Police officers unsuccessfully administered first aid to the mother and tried to resuscitate her to no avail. 

    "They rushed her to Kilungu Sub-county hospital where, unfortunately, she passed away while undergoing treatment," reads a statement by DCI in part.

    The authority advised students to be responsible and to take wise counsel offered by their teachers and parents in order to avoid such incidents in future.

    In addition, religious leaders have been called upon to take their rightful role in guiding and mentoring young adults, to becoming responsible adults in future.

    Early this year, Education CS George Magoha championed the reintroduction of caning back in schools to curb the rising cases of indiscipline among students. 

    This is after a number of cases were reported involving unlawful activities in institutions.

    "Learners will not commit crimes and walk scot-free. We shall ensure that these situations are neutralised before they escalate," he stated.
