The Ministry of Education has set-up a team to investigate the death of an Alliance High School student.
Kiambu County Education Director Ali Abdikadir said the team will visit the school to carry out independent investigations into the death of Haroun Kipngeno Kemboi.
The student was taken to a local hospital for treatment on Monday after developing health complications; he died on Friday.
Kemboi's family claims they were kept in the dark about his illness, only to be told later that he had died of tuberculosis.
"We were told that the student was admitted in a local hospital in Kikuyu on Monday, and tests were done on Wednesday.
"However, on Friday they informed [us] that he was unwell only to call again in 15 minutes that he is dead," the family said.
Mr Abdikadir said he had received a report from the school about the incident but declined to disclose the findings.
"We have their report and we will also have to do our own investigations," he said.
The school management declined to speak to the media about the matter.
The incident comes a year after principal David Kariuki was forced out following revelations of bullying.
Mr William Mwangi was appointed to take over from Mr Kariuki.
In January last year, a student died at Moi High School Kabarak, Nakuru.
A post-mortem report showed she died of malaria, but reports from the school's clinic indicated she was being treated for a bacterial infection.
