Head teacher killed in Laikipia

28 June 2012, 14:37 James Kabotia

The Vice-chairman of Kenya Primary School Head teachers Association (KEPSHA) Laikipia County was brutally murdered on Wednesday night by armed robbers at Mathagiro area on his way home after he had closed his bar.

Josephat Maina who was also the head teacher of Ngare Ndare Primary School was walking in the rain at around 10pm when he encountered two motorcyclists who offered him a lift.

The father of three and resident of Muchuiri Village denied their offer and forged ahead with his journey as they closely followed and monitored his steps. They later attacked and mercilessly rendered 10 cuts of pangas on his head as blood oozed profusely.

Two Good Samaritans found him lying helplessly as he yelled out in pain that the attackers were from Muchuiri Village. They alerted the community police who rushed him to the hospital.  

According to Nanyuki Hospital’s medical superintendent David Njoroge the man died as he was being ferried to the hospital.

The Kenya National Union of Teachers Laikipia County has threatened to hold a peaceful demonstration if the government will not have taken any measures by tomorrow at 3pm on the matter.

The Executive Secretary Jackson Thangei has noted that the union has lost myriads of teachers at a higher rate in Laikipia East District in the recent past.

“This abrupt death must have been planned and it is a high time that the government intervene and ensure that the robbers are brought to book”, said Thangei.

Maina has left behind a wife and three chidren.

Meanwhile in another incident, Phyllis Nyawira Muthee of Olmoran Day Secondary school was stabbed with a knife severally by her lover and died.

The young lady who was employed last year by Teachers Service Commission was murdered after differing with her married lover who attacked and killed her with a knife.
