Unfortunately, the teacher left for a short time to have breakfast and the girl rushed to the dormitory where she hang herself using a cloth.
It is not clear why the student committed suicide and investigations into the incident are ongoing. The incident comes barely two months after a class eight pupil in God Bura primary school in Suba Sub-county committed suicide in June this year after his family rejected his decision not to go to high school.
