According to the Head teacher of the Primary school Augustine Mwaura said the classroom were brought down on Saturday afternoon after Class 8 students had just left for home.

The principal added that this was not the first incident under which the a classroom had been brought down by floods saying there was a similar case that had taken place in 2009 where also over 65 peoples were also affected by the same incident.

Mwaura added that peoples of the lower Primary in class 1, 2, and 3 are all terrified by the incident that has disrupted normal learning in the school. Mwaura also said some other peoples are not willing to go to classes forcing others to stay at home.

“Lower primary peoples are living in fear in the school compound and when ever they hear a rain drop they all scatter in fear and start getting packing to go home”  said Mwaura.

The chairman of the Board of Directors BOD Joseph K  Njoroge said their efforts to get to meet with their area MP John Mututho to help them have been fruitless saying he is not picking their calls.
