Winrose Mwaniki the Headteacher however denied all the accusations levelled against her terming them unfounded and politically instigated.
“The parents do not pay school fees on time. These accusations are unfounded and political.”
She added that the demonstrations were politically instigated. The demonstrations halted transport activities along the Kwale Kombani Road at Tsimba trading centre – with businesses in the small town paying the price.
The students engaged Police officers from Kwale in a running battle after erecting roadblocks on the main road using boulders and tree branches.
Mr Juma Gavuga The school board chair blamed the head teacher for working in isolation and dictating how the school should be run. He said the community was unhappy with the head teacher – and accused to rationing water in the school thereby affecting the girls.
Kwale governor Salim Mvurya took interventions whose entourage was also blocked by students to diffuse the demonstrations and have the road cleared. The governor who addressed the students and parents promised to look into the matter.
“I want you to stop blocking the road because I am going to address the issue urgently. I urge you all to maintain peace as my office will work on ways to ensure sanity is restored at the school and ensure students go back to class, The Gorvenor said.
