Two schools go on strike in Busia

09 September 2014, 20:57 Jane Zack

Busia - A secondary and primary school students in Teso South went on strike on Monday demanding the removal of the school heads.

Apokor Secondary and Kaliwa Primary School students locked their heads demanding their immediate removal for them to resume classes.

At Kaliwa primary, the local community barred head teacher Michael Aluku for allegedly cutting school trees and for denying the community water from drilled borehole.

Area MP Mary Emaase said she convened a BOM meeting on Friday for the head teacher to open the borehole to the community but he defied her orders.

The MP said the head also cut nine trees to fund his trip to Mombasa and for running the school without the Board having disbanded the duly elected one.

Emaase said the staff had gone for seven months without their salaries, adding that the head had also sacked to ECD teachers and for imposing exorbitant fees.

The MP said she had asked the DEO to have the head transferred for failing to agree on the BOM resolution.

At Apokor secondary the 150 students looked out Principal Margaret Amollo whom they accused of highhandedness, nepotism and failing to cope up with other members of staff.

They claimed the principal sacked two Board of Management hired teachers for no apparent reason and for failing to relate well with her colleagues.

Emaase said she had sent a team to the school to find a lasting solution and urged the Education to have the two schools opened and students resume classes.
