A Nyahururu student was discovered dead at Mt. Longonot after going missing.
After failing to locate the form four pupil on Thursday, October 27, the multiagency team, which included Kenya Wildlife Service officials, began its search, according to Mutua. He was discovered by the search crew when he was getting close to Mount Longonot’s summit.
According to what he saw, the kid had bruises on his hands and was struggling to breathe when he was discovered. The commissioner claimed that the bruises could have resulted from the man’s several stumbles when he battled to ascend the mountain in search of his classmates.
Enock Balemba, the student was flown by the rescue team for medical care, but was later pronounced dead.
“26 Form Four students and 10 staff joined 70 other individuals on the trip. The pupil in question, Enock Balemba, was restless after ascending and descending the Longonot for a few hours, according to Gacheru, and told one of his classmates that he could no longer make the ascent”, said the headteacher Simon Gacheru.
He revealed that while others continued, Balemba sat down and stayed in the back. The pupil did not remain seated for very long before vanishing into the jungle and never emerging, according to the teacher.
