A Form Two student who had gone missing from St Stevens Girls High School in Machakos has been found.
The 16-year-old girl showed up at their home in Kawangware Wednesday, after missing for the last three months after being sent away from school over lack of school fees.
The girl’s mother Mary Mukami had been looking for her for the last three months in vain which prompted her to ask journalists to accompany her to the school to seek answers.
But upon her visit to the school in the company of journalists, Mukami says she realised her daughter was sent home due to lack of fees — information that she got from her daughters’ schoolmates, and which her daughter also confirmed.
The daughter told reports she drank water, and doesn’t recall what happened thereafter.

Mr. John Kyalo, the Principal of St. Steven’s Girls School in #Machakos County & Ms. Mary Mukami, the mother of the missing girl have been arrested by officers following the attack on Journalists. The two suspects will be charged with Incitement to Violence among other offences.
On Monday, three KTN journalists were attacked at the school as they went to seek information on the issue. The school has since been closed.
