She died upon arrival at the Kenyatta National Hospital where she had been referred for treatment.

Teachers had been administering capital punishment on pupils even though it was illegal in the east African country.

In January, another teacher caned a 14-year-old boy to death for reporting to school late.

The school head, however, absolved the responsible teacher of blame, saying the boy was epileptic.
