Shock, grief and disbelief gripped Kapkiamo village in Baringo North after a 19-year-old girl hanged herself outside their home after killing her four-month-old baby.
The girl, described by close relatives as a someone with a promising future after she topped her class in the nearby Kapkiamo Secondary School, chose an avocado tree outside the homestead of Mzee Kandie to end her life.
Outside the home, neighbours spoke in hushed tones upon viewing the blue mosquito net dangling on the fruit tree that was used to snuff out the girl’s life.
According to the mother Rael Kandie, the girl could not explain the whereabouts of her baby boy, Roy Koech whom she had gone out with.
