Jenniffer Mitchelle was allegedly killed on school grounds and her body was left at the Mama Lucy Hospital, prompting a family to demand justice.
Mitchelle was allegedly beaten to death by a teacher after she answered a question incorrectly in class on May 19, 2021.
Hilda Achieng, Mitchelle’s mother, waited in vain for her daughter to leave school on that tragic day.
“I expected her to return with the other Grade learners at 5 p.m., but she did not. “I asked her classmates around 5.30 p.m., but no one had seen her,” Achieng said.
After failing to get information from the school, Achieng decided to file a missing person’s complaint with the Kayole Police Station and return home.
A police officer contacted her at about 9 p.m. on the same day and informed her that her daughter had been found.
“He told me there was a youngster at the Mama Lucy Hospital who met my daughter’s description, but he urged me not to go alone,” she said.
When Achieng arrived at the hospital, she discovered that her daughter had died a long time ago.
Following the event, seven activists went to the school on Tuesday, July 27 to protest the situation. However, they were apprehended and spent the night in the Soweto jail.
Achieng, who was among the demonstrators, demanded justice and declared that she would never be able to move on from her daughter’s death.
“She was in wonderful health and joyful when I took her to school that morning,” she said.
