KEY POINTS

Risking the lives of other students for whatever grievance is a criminal offense. Students found violating these rights should go to jail.


Schools burning

Maranda High School in Siaya and Mwala Girls Secondary School in Machakos are the latest in the list of schools that have set their dormitories on fire.

The two schools set ablaze the buildings on the morning of November 8, barely a day after a Nyamira conducted the shameful act.

This worrying trend, unfortunately, is perpetrated by the students themselves. The worst part is that these fires target the most critical parts of their institutions including dormitories, labs, and libraries.

The justifications of these incidences include some of the stupidest reasons. In one incident, students burnt down a school because the principal denied the students a chance to watch the Premier League match.

Others burn down schools because they fear exams, the fallout between teachers and students, food protests among others. Then some are just pure criminality – done by goons just for the thrill of it.

  23. Amasago Boys Secondary
  24. Amabuko Secondary School
  25. Kibirigwi Girls High School
  26. Namboboto secondary school
  27. Vihiga Boys Secondary School

Well, the issue needs dire intervention – and it involves the society at large, parents, teachers, and school boards.

Risking the lives of other students for whatever grievance is a criminal offense. Students found violating these rights should go to jail. It is also highly important that the schools be critically looked at, in how they are governed.

And perhaps encouraging the disciplining of students found on the wrong should be brought back.
