Two Secondary schools in Nyeri on strike

26 July 2012, 12:58 Joseph Mkubwa

TWO secondary schools' students left classes and protested on the roads in Nyeri County on Tuesday as school unrest cases continues.

First, it was Birithia Girls’ Secondary School in Othaya which was striking for the third time in a month where more than 100 students of Form Fours stormed out of the institution and walked to the District Education Offices in Othaya town – four kilometers away where they sought audience with District Education Officer Jackson Kaberia.

The girls had stormed out of the classes on Monday morning complaining of being mistreated by the school’s administration claiming that they were not being accorded the attention their juniors got from teachers.

They accused teachers of giving too much attention to their juniors in Form Three.

However government officers led by Kaberia managed to convince them to return back to the school promising them that the issue would be addressed immediately during the 7.30 am incident.

The form four girls complained of favoritism of their form three counterparts by the school administration saying that they felt neglected and even were served meals last.

“Animosity in the school between students in Form Three and those in Form Four had led to the walk out but I shall meet with the school’s administration in a bid to resolve the matter once and for all,” said the DEO on phone.

The DEO said that the form four girls had agreed to resume learning as the matter was being deliberated.

In Tetu district, more than 100 students of Gaaki Secondary School went on strike after one of the students who was found in school with a mobile phone in school was suspended.

Area DC Herman Shambi said however the provincial administration and the education officials managed to convince the students who later returned to school.
