A section of leaders from Kiambu County have hailed proposals by the Government to abolish boarding schools to quell perennial unrest in public secondary schools. The leaders also backed the government’s directive to institute criminal charges against those found guilty of the arson attacks. They supported the move saying such recommendations were sober in addressing institutional destruction of infrastructure. The latest entrant in the statistics is Mokowe secondary school in Lamu County where property worth 7.5 million shillings was destroyed by fire as a dormitory was reduced to ashes. Though investigations have commenced to bring to book those behind the arson attack, the School’s principal Thaddeus Mugute noted that the School administration was unable to salvage anything. Speaking in Kiambu County the leaders said it was unfortunate that certain individuals have politicized the on-going process of de-localization of teachers. Mokowe secondary school brings to six, the number of schools torched in one week. At least 142 students have been arrested in connection with the wave of arson in schools across the country.
