Tuesday September 24, 2019 - The country woke up to tragic news yesterday that a classroom at Precious Talent School along Ngong Road in Nairobi collapsed on pupils and killed eight.
The story of one such victim identified as Emmah Idambo, 13, was a heartbreaking one especially considering that she was preparing to sit for her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education that is set to commence this October.
On Sunday, Idambo had spent the better part of the day at her father’s church, The Gate of Holiness Worship Centre in Ng’ando, to mark her prayer day in preparation of the exams.
She was part of the choir at the church which led worship at her prayer day event.
Idambo was a firstborn in a family of three and was part of the pupils who were inside the classroom at the time of the collapse.
She was rushed to Medihill Hospital in Kawangware with head and chest injuries but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Idambo was among six children who perished while 64 others were admitted at KNH hospital where they are undergoing treatment.
