Candidate admitted in hospital after fighting over pen

27 October 2014, 13:12 Oduor Omondi

Siaya - A female candidate has discontinued sitting for her KCSE exams after she got a fracture on her right arm during a fight with a male candidate in Siaya County.

Victorine Anyango, 20, was admitted at Siaya County Referral Hospital following the incident at Ulafu Mixed Secondary School, East Alego, some 15 km from Siaya town.

The School Principal, Olga Ogonya, said Anyango and the other candidate, Victor Waroma, started fighting over a pen, as they were revising with other candidates at the school field.

Speaking from her hospital bed, Anyango said Waroma stole the pen after she accidentally forgot it in the field.

"I asked Waroma if he had seen the pen because I found him at the spot, but he accused me of calling him a thief and started hitting me with his shoe," she said.

Anyango added that Waroma then pushed her against a rock that caused the fracture on her arm, after which sympathetic students raised fare for a motorcycle that took her to the hospital.

The girl’s father, Peter Opiyo, said he was informed of the incident by one of the students and then went to the hospital where he was told to obtain a P3 form from police for the daughter to be attended to.

The x-ray photos taken at the hospital indicated that Anyango had a fracture and a crack on the bone of the right arm.

Anyango had only sat her Chemistry practicals exam when the incident occurred, and said she could not continue with the rest of the papers because of the injury.
