Human right group demand suspension of school head

14 November 2013, 14:36 Wilshere

Nakuru - A human rights lobby group in Nakuru has urged Nakuru County director of Education to take action against a headteacher who allegedly beat and injured a pupil at Chemaner Primary School in Kuresoi.

The lobby group is demanding stern action against Joel Koskei who is the headteacher of the school  for causing serious injuries on the pupil.

Speaking on Thursday in Nakuru town, the director of the lobby group, David Kuria, said that the Nakuru County director of Education should suspend the headteacher pending investigation.

“The office of the director of Education in the County should suspend Joel Koskei, the headteacher, for the injuries he inflicted on the pupil,” he said.

Kuria said that the 14-year-old girl was allegedly beaten by the headteacher for wearing a pullover that was not part of the school uniform early this week.

He said that the girl sustained injuries on her back and that she has not been attending school for the last few days.

“The girl had some serious injuries on her back and that's why she has not been able to attend school,” he said.
