A Class Eight girl at Kibargoyet Primary School in Elgeyo Marakwet County has been left paralysed from the waist down to the feet and is now using a wheelchair after she was allegedly hit by a piece of wood by teachers.
The KCPE candidate, 15, was admitted Iten County Referral Hospital for physiotherapy for days, but still, she cannot walk due to unending back pain after the beating by teachers.
According to the mother Lilian Chesoo, her daughter who is expected to sit her KCPE next month was hit on the back using a piece of wood, injuring her spine.
Chesoo who later reported the matter to police accused the school management of abandoning the girl after injuring her and failing to inform her about what had transpired.
“It is painful for me because I found my daughter abandoned in school and I had to pick her for medical attention,” she narrated.
The single mother recalls a female teacher in the school breaking the news of her daughter’s injury. She was at the time doing her routine menial jobs, she remembers.
“I went to the school to demand answers and I was told my child has been epileptic, but that is not true because my daughter has been representing the school in athletics competitions,” said Chesoo.
She continued: “Since that day, I have been in and out of the hospital. The girl is in unbearable pain and can’t sleep at night. I am a single mother and I have been relying on relatives and well-wishers to pay hospital bills.
