WATCH: Teachers caught on camera caning students

26 February 2016, 17:04

Nairobi - Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has ordered swift punishment for teachers who were filmed caning students.

Matiang’i, according to the Daily Nation made an impromptu visit to Keveye Girls Secondary School in Vihiga on Thursday and said he was moved by media reports about heavy caning at the school in western Kenya.

He directed the school’s board of management, the county education directors and the Teachers Service Commission to hold a meeting and report to him by Monday next week.

“The incident of caning will be addressed. The officials will look into the matter. I would like to deal with this matter in a professional way considering the code of conduct and ethics,” he said.

The Star reported that the footage posted on Facebook on Tuesday shows four teachers — three men and a woman caning the students in the school’s staff room. 

He said he was impressed by students’ discipline when he visited the school yesterday morning.

“To be honest, there is a little bit of exaggeration regarding the video circulating on social media and reports aired in a section of the media regarding how students are disciplined in the school,” Matiang’i said.
