A Form One student has been expelled from school after attending her guardian’s funeral in Sengani Secondary School in Kangundo, Machakos County.
The 15-year-old girl claimed that she was told to go back home despite having been issued with a leave-out form that allowed her to go for the family function.
Speaking to one of the tv stations the student narrated how she learnt that her uncle had died in a road accident and sought permission to leave school for the burial.
