A section of Kenyans have reacted to a video of a primary school teacher mercilessly beating a leaner. According to the video shared by one Alberto Nyakundi on Facebook, it displayed a teacher handling several canes.
The male teacher then asks the nervous learners to sit as he beat their feet. The leaners who walked barefoot felt an excruciating pain as evident from their reactions.
One of them cried as he tried to ask for mercy but the teacher couldn't hear none of it. The teacher even stepped on one of the kid's fibula bones to allow him conduct the punishment.
"Wangu huwezi Mfanyia hivi," said most Kenyans on the comments section. The Constitution 2010 under Basic Education Act 2013 banned corporal punishment in Kenyan schools. Many teachers have found themselves on the wrong side of the law after being found beating students.
In 2022, the recently departed former education CS Prof. George Magoha asked TSC to discontinue a teacher who was caught beating a student over poor performance. Beating leaners is an act which every teacher should forget these days.
