3 schools in Nyanza Go on Rampage

On Thursday, December 2, learning operations at three schools in Nyanza were disrupted after students allegedly went on a rampage.

A dormitory at Itibo Boys High School in Kisii County’s Marani Sub County, Kitutu Chache North, was burned to the ground.

Even though sources indicated that students had threatened to go on a rampage, the main cause of the fire remains unknown.

This comes at a time when the school’s performance has been improving over the last three years.

A dormitory at Kenyoro Mixed Day and Boarding School was also burned to ashes in Marani, Kitutu Chache North, Kisii County.

According to a police report, the school principal, Simon Kipng’etich Yengoni, told officers assigned to the Kegogi Police Station that the fire was spreading quickly.

“Officers drawn from the station together with Kisii County Disaster Management Team rushed to the scene and extinguished the fire which had destroyed the dormitory that houses 58 students,” the report read in part.

According to the report, the students’ property of unknown value was reduced to ashes because nothing could be salvaged.

Fortunately, no casualties were reported in the late-night fire incident.

“All students assembled at the parade ground and were addressed by Patrick Murira who is the police boss in Marani and Sub- County officials from the Ministry of Education who asked them to be calm,” the report further read.

According to Yengoni, the form four students whose dormitory had been affected were already accommodated in a separate room.

The scene was meticulously documented, and investigations by officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) were launched to determine the root cause of the fire.
