Speaker wants NIS to investigate school unrests

31 July 2016, 21:47 Wasike Elvis

Eldoret - Uasin Gishu county County Assembly Speaker, Isaac Terer has called upon the National Intelligence Services (NIS) to stop sleeping on their job and investigate the increasing cases of arson in schools across the country.

Terer said NIS have failed in their mandate and wondered why they are still in office and yet schools are continuing to burn.

"There is more than meets the eye with rising cases of arson in schools. NIS should carry out thorough investigation and tell us what is happening and know it's root cause; how can over 100 schools go to ashes yet we are told nothing," he posed.

Speaking in Eldoret town on Saturday, he said: "It's sad that students are coping what their political leaders where they always resort to mass action. We have set a bad precedence for our children."

He added that changes in school calendar, curriculum and teacher code of conduct are among areas that should be looked into as possible causes of unrest in schools.

"I urge all Education stakeholders to embrace dialogue to earth this menace once and for all," noted Terer.
