A class three girl was found hanging on a tree a day after she went missing. The girl was found by her grandmother lifeless dandling on a tree.
Grief has since engulfed the residents most of whom are still in shock wondering what could have triggered such a dreadful act from a minor. The girl, who was only nine years old, was living with her grandparents while her parents work and live in Nairobi.
The resident question how a nine-year old could have managed to climb a tree and tie the noose before killing herself.
Confirming the incident, Makueni OCPD, Benjamin Onsongo, said that on Saturday evening said the matter is under investigations to ascertain the cause of the unfortunate event.
“We do not know the reason why she took her life but investigations are ongoing on why and how such a young girl could commit suicide,” A rather surprised Mr. Nosing said.
The deceased’s body has since been taken to Makueni County Referral Hospital Mortuary.
