Suspected Expired Jolly Jus Sends 6 Pupils to Hospital in Rukungiri

In Rukungiri’s Nyarushanje Subcounty, at least six pupils from Rubirizi Primary School have been admitted to Kisizi Hospital following suspicions that they consumed expired Jolly Jus.

The incident took place on Thursday morning, shortly after the break time, when one of the pupils purchased a packet of Jolly Jus and shared it with others. The pupils mixed the beverage with water using empty plastic bottles.

After consuming the mixture, the pupils returned to their classrooms. Within minutes, several of them began experiencing stomach pain, prompting the school administrators to intervene.
