She further stated that she had a meeting with form one and two students and later on had late lunch before she was alerted about the incident.
"I had a baraza with form one and form two from morning until around 2:30 pm where I had even invited counsellors to talk to the students. I had late lunch around 3-4 with the counsellors and walked them to the gate," she said.
