Students torching schools will be barred from enrolling in public schools

Prof. George Magoha, Cabinet Secretary for Education, has now warned that students involved in school fires will be barred from enrolling in public schools.

On Monday, while touring schools in Machakos County, the CS stated that the directive would help reduce school indiscipline.

Despite the rise in indiscipline cases, Magoha insisted that schools would not be closed, calling the torching of schools and vandalism of school property “primitive.”

“It looks mundane and juvenile to burn a building. It is stupid, it’s primitive and must stop. We are not closing any schools,” stated the CS.

His statement comes after he was accused of indolence in the following a wave of school fires that swept across the country, with Maranda High School and Mwala Girls High School being the most recent to go up in flames, bringing the total to over 35 across the country.

Education CS Prof. George Magoha dismissed claims that the frequent burning of schools is attributed to stresses of covid-19.

However, a lack of proper discipline from a few parents who have mismanaged the upbringing of their children could be the cause according to the CS.
