The pupil identified as Mavin Ochieng Okuku, from Ramba Primary School reportedly hanged himself using a trouser inside his bedroom, Saturday night, after the parents refused to let him watch the final match between Chelsea and Man City.
According to Chief of Mfangano North Location, Bernard Oloo, the boy requested to go and watch the finals at Ramba Trading Center on Saturday night but the parents declined the request and ordered him to go and sleep.
“The deceased’s mother followed him immediately and locked the door from outside to preclude him from sneaking out to go and watch the match,” The stated Administrator.
