Maranda school On Fire Again Days After 400 Students Were Sent Home For Refusing Exams

For the past one month, there have been various incidences of school fires across the country. This had caused panic and unrest from both the parents and the students as well as teachers. The Ministry of education took an intervention by introducing half term. This appeared to cool down the situation a little bit. This morning however, Maranda National school has gone up in flames again.

This is after there was tension in school from last week. Form four students had allegedly threatened to burn down the school so as to evade the mock exams. Siaya County Director of Education Nelson Sifuna confirmed that over 400 students were sent home on Thursday morning.“The internal mock exams, which were scheduled for Monday, December 6, have since been postponed to a later date, which will be communicated,” he said.

Sifuna said the students had, on Tuesday night, threatened to torch learning or accommodation facilities within the school. The school went up in flames this morning as fire fighters responded immediately.
