Standard seven pupil severely caned by teacher

22 March 2016, 18:05

Nairobi – A teacher at JoyMax Academy in Huruma Estate is accused of using excessive force on a standard seven pupil who is now nursing severe injuries.

According to Citizen TV the pupil had approached his teacher, David Webwe about love letters he had received from a standard eight girl.

The boy’s father saw his son’s injuries when he went to the school to deliver fruit.

According to Webwe he beat the boy in order to instil discipline into him and linked the boy with known delinquents at the school.

This comes shortly after a post by the Daily Nation reporting that Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has ordered swift disciplinary action against teachers at a Vihiga school who were filmed mercilessly caning students.

The video showed four teachers - three men and a woman - standing in line and heavily caning the students in the school’s staff room.
