Education CS George Magoha has blamed parents terming them neglectful over risen student attacks on teachers.
Magoha further asked law enforcement agencies to take strict action on the perpetrators of identified cases as he urged teachers to take care of themselves.
“The problem is that parents are not giving their children tough love… because for nine months a child has been at home and you’ve been treating him like an egg and you expect the Principal to instil in him discipline, what do you think will happen?” Asked said.
The CS spoke on Wednesday at Our Lady of Fatima Secondary School in Kariobangi, Nairobi County. He weighed in on the matter following a series of attacks on teachers with the cruellest being in Kisii county where a student last week attacked two teachers with a knife hurting one severely.
The CS also announced that 99 per cent of learners had reported back to schools since the resumption. Magoha also announced that the administration is in plans to restart the provision of sanitary to school girls with consideration centred on minors in primary schools.
“Every girl who is in primary school and is in puberty will receive sanitary towels to last nine months… we are also in talks with KCB Foundation for the same provision to secondary schools,” he said.
The CS also said the provision of free lunch to learners in arid, semi-arid and informal settlements is to resume as well.
