Form Four Candidate Handed One Year probation Sentence Over Dorm Inferno

A form four student at Ortum Boys in West Pokot County has been sentenced to a one year probation sentence after he was found guilty of taking part in torching a dormitory at the school.

 The candidate who was accused alongside others was found guilty by a Kapenguria court of direct involvement in the torching of one of the dormitories at the institution in the month of October will serve the sentence while learning.

 “The boy was found guilty of starting the fire in conjunction with others who are still undergoing police investigations. This must be a lesson to tame the habit,” said Kapenguria OCPD Kipkemoi Kirui.

 Kirui advised students in the region to embrace diplomatic ways of seeking a redress to their grievances instead of destroying school properties while at the same time endangering their lives.

 “We call on students to air out their challenges to their respective school administrations instead of resorting to these criminal ways since those who will be found culpable will be prosecuted,” said the police boss.

 He said the consequences of such activities will also affect their future since their certificates of good conduct will bear criminal profiling which may hinder them from being taken up in job opportunities.
