Nakuru back to school rush

02 September 2013, 13:06 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru town was on Monday morning swamped with a beehive of activity as both primary schools and secondary schools reopened for the third term of learning.

Commuters travelling to Eldoret, Kisumu and Nairobi were left stranded in most of the stage terminals due to the shortage of public vehicles.

According to one passenger Joseph Owino who was travelling to Kisumu, the bus fares had been hiked higher than the usual amount he normally pays.

“There are very few buses travelling to up country plus the fares are now double what we normally pay when we are travelling to Kisumu,” he said.

Boarding school pupils and students reporting to schools also found themselves stranded at the busy bus station in Nakuru.

Meanwhile, there were long queues in most of the banks in town as parents made late school fees payments for their children.

It was the same case for bookshops where the store were full to capacity forcing both parents and their children to queue outside.

Speaking to the media, James Wanaina a bookshop owner said that there was a high number of parents who came to buy for their children books and other school equipments.
