Panic has gripped Bukari Primary School in Bukibokolo Sub County in Bududa district after a Primary Seven Pupil collapsed and died in an examination room as they started their Primary Leaving Examinations, this morning.

Winnie Kakayi, 14 was among the 21 pupils registered to sit primary leaving examination in the school but got malaria over the last week.

According to the school head teacher David Kitutu, the deceased’s parents had informed him earlier that the child was suffering from malaria but was not treated as parents sought divine intervention for her recovery. Kakayi collapsed as soon as she started the mathematics paper.

The deceased’s father John Wandera said he asked her to stay home since she was sick but insisted that she could not miss an examination she has been preparing for.
