Kathaana DEB secondary school In Kangundo Sub-county watchman was found murdered at the school compound, and several offices were broken into.

The incident has led students of the school located in Kathaan Market along Kangundo Machakos highway to go back home.

Patrick Nzioka, the young brother to the late watchman, says he was called in the morning by one of the cooks who informed him of the news.

Nzioka said he found the school guard lying dead, with blood oozing from the mouth and nose.

The late watchman is the 7th born in his family and had started working in the school a week ago.

Confirming the incident, Kathaana sub-location assistant chief Lucas Ndambo Mutuku said he informed the area OCPD, OCS, and other security officials who rushed to the scene to conduct investigations.

Police have since picked up the body and taken it to Kangundo Hospital mortuary.
