Midlands provincial police spokesperson Inspector Joel Goko who spoke to a local publication The Chronicle confirmed the sudden death of Collin which occurred at Nkululeko Secondary School on Sunday.

Inspector Goko revealed that the now deceased was washing his blankets in a tub in the boys’ hostel when he got electrocuted.
