Grief has engulfed Oyugi Ogango Girls Secondary school after their Principal Martha Ouma passed on Tuesday morning.
The late Martha Ouma died while undergoing treatment at a Kisumu hospital with officials dispelling rumours she might have succumbed to Covid 19.
Regional Education officials have, however, denied reports that the Principal succumbed to the virus.
Five teachers at the school are said to be in self isolation.
Addressing the press, Migori County education officer Elizabeth Otieno said the teacher passed on at Nightingale Hospital in Kisumu.
Otieno said it was sad that after her death, social media users had attributed the death to Covid 19 which she said was false and alarming.
“She was unwell for long and the death has shocked us, we are waiting for further deaths and results from the ministry of health on what might have caused her death. We discourage alarm over the death with unconfirmed reports,” she said.
Migori County Health Executive Iscar Oluoch said the cause of death is not yet established.
