Learning paralysed as heavy rains destroy classrooms

27 October 2014, 10:43 Oduor Omondi

Migori - Learning was paralysed at Got Keyo Primary School in Otati village, Nyatike sub-County of Migori County, after heavy rains destroyed four classrooms and teachers' offices.

The Friday incident saw parts of the walls of the school buildings curve in and their rooftops blown off and thrown meters away as the rainstorm that was accompanied by strong winds wreaked havoc in the area.

According to the school head teacher, Shem Ojwang’, no injuries were recorded during the incident as it happened after pupils and teachers had left.

He estimated the cost of damage to the school at KES 2.5 million and appealed to both the National and County governments to assist in the repairs.

Ojwang’ expressed fears that activities at the school, including Kenya Certificate for Primary Education (KCPE) examinations which kick off in a week’s time, could be seriously affected unless the repairs are done speedily.

He asked the Nyatike Member of Parliament, Edick Anyanga together with the area Governor, Zachary Obado and County Commissioner, Anne Ng’etich to join hands and ensure that normal learning resumes at the institution.

“I am also appealing to any other well-wishers who can assist us in any way to come forward," said Ojwang’.
