The students complained of stomachaches, diarrhea, vomiting and headaches after having supper on Thursday evening.

Confirming the unfortunate incident, school Principal Mrs Consolata Ong'ong'o said they rushed them to a Khalaba private hospital, as there are no nurses in public hospitals. Health facility Mr Edwin Mutunga, said that all the learners had similar symptoms.

Bungoma education director Jacob Onyiego and Richard Sabwami, county representative of Kenya Secondary Heads Association, asked parents not to worry "as the situation is under control".

"They were admitted at the nearest facility...we are yet to establish what they are suffering from...let's wait for the results."
