This comes a week after a class eight student was forced to skip her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations after going blind days to the national test. 

The student at Kasole Primary School in Mwingi Central, Kitui County went blind after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.  

The 15-year-old lost her eyesight after arriving at Mwingi Level IV Hospital to get checked over her persistent headache.  

The student was referred to Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) for specialized care because Mwingi Level IV Hospital lack the required amenities to extract the tumour.
