The parent argued that their anger was provoked by the school management, which , even after ordering each parents to pay Sh 1,500 through the PTA , which was required to carry out administrative cost , including payments of salaries , the management went ahead and sold school items without their consent.

The school went ahead and sold food stuffs from the school store, despite them pocketing sh 1 500 per student from the parents.

Before they left the school compound , the parents realized that the bulls had a cart which they used to pull. One of the parents offered to buy the cart at Sh 10,000, the money which they shared equally amongst them selves .The bulls had 254 Kg of meat, which was shared among 90 parents .

The parents argued that , before the schools were closed, they had almost thirty bags of food stuffs left in the school store, but as of today, not even a single grain that can be found in that store. The school had sold everything, including the pigs .
