Students demonstrate against stripping by Principal

27 February 2015, 17:01 Arap Yego

Busia - Nambale Urban Secondary school in Busia County has been closed down indefinitely after the students at the institution went on strike demanding the immediate transfer of their school Principal.

The students demonstrated along the streets of Nambale town as they headed to the local education office that is about three kilometres away, bringing business in the busy town to a complete standstill.

The protesting students accused the Principal, Joseph Onyango who was recently transferred to the school from St. Mary’s Mundika Boys where he was Deputy Principal, of high-handedness and being irresponsible.

“He is not keen on education matters. We in Form Four for instance have not yet sat any examinations until now,” said a student who is expected to sit for his final exams this year.

Other learners also accused Onyango for caning them while naked and failing to control other teachers.

“Teachers come to school and give lessons any time and day they feel like; same to the Principal who has left all duties to the deputy. He also forces us to remove clothes before beating us thoroughly,” said another student.

No property was destroyed by the students during the five hours strike which started at 5am in the morning.

Nambale Deputy County Commissioner, Francis Lenyangume and Nambale OCPD, Henry Itubu addressed the protesters and appealed to them to return to school.

Busia County Assembly Majority Leader, Josephat Wandera and nominated MCA, Hon. Mary Okedi visited the school and addressed the agitated students.
