AIC Ndune Secondary School parents threaten to withdraw students if TSC does not Transfer Principal
Parents of students at AIC Ndune Secondary School in Makima, Mbeere South Subcounty, have threatened to withdraw their children due to the school principal’s behaviour.
The parents accuse the principal of being a drunk and instilling bad morals in students, as well as misappropriating school funds, among other things.
Angry parents who have since warned the principal not to set foot in the school said they tried everything they could to persuade the principal to change his ways, but their efforts were futile.
The principal is also accused of harassing female students while drunk, which parents say they will not tolerate.
According to Joseph Nguta, the teacher would sometimes call a parents meeting, then leave the school and consume alcohol after the parents arrived.
“We are not able to withstand the behaviour of our principal, he is very drunk and indisciplined, the immoral behaviour he is cultivating in our students is wanting, we will just move our students from this school and leave it for him,” Nguta, a parent said.
Rael Maingi echoed his sentiments, saying that it is unfortunate to see the principal behave in this manner.
According to Pastor Boniface Kieti of the AIC church, which sponsors the school, the principal has a history of misappropriating school funds.
He stated that his behaviour has enraged parents, who have petitioned the government to transfer the principal because they have lost faith in him.
“We cannot entertain such kind of person in the midst of our students it’s either the government transfer him or the parents take their students to other schools,” pastor Kieti said.
Kieti stated that it is extremely disheartening for the government to allow the principal to continue with his duties in the school despite parental complaints.
