School accused of not curbing bullying as student loses teeth

22 March 2016, 15:42 Joseph Njung’eh

Murang'a - A form two student from a secondary school in Murang’a County is seeking justice after losing two teeth following an assault incident by schoolmates.

The 15-year-old boy claimed that form two students were roughed up by their colleagues in form three on the night of March 5, this year for reportedly being disrespectful to their seniors, an incident in which he lost the two teeth while others were left loose.

He claimed that after reporting the case to the school administration he was given sick off to go and seek medical attention in a nearby health centre but nothing was done to the offending boys.

The boy’s mother wondered why the school administration has failed to curb bullying, saying the behaviour is criminal.

When mother and son visited the school seeking for a transfer letter for the boy, teachers allegedly locked themselves inside their offices.

It took the intervention of police officers who forced the teachers to open their offices and serve the boy and mother.

Area District Education Officer, Kamau Ruitha said he had received information about the incident on March 14 from the school’s principal but was quick to add that the handling of the offending boys was inappropriate as they were only punished and let back to class.

“The Basic Education Act is clear that a matter of such magnitude involving students should be handled by the board of management,” Ruitha said.

Ruitha however, said he is waiting for a formal report from the school to establish exactly what transpired to allow him take necessary action.
