More than 150 students of Sigor Day Secondary School in Bomet County were in a rare protest after they trekked 21km protesting the government's failure in posting a teacher at their institution.

The students took 4 hours to get to the county headquarters on foot, to present their grievances to education officers. They lamented that appeals from the school's stakeholders have not been taken seriously.

“It is pointless for us to be in school and assume all is well when the commission has failed to deploy teachers employed by the government to take charge of the institution,” said a student who spoke on behalf of others.

Addressing the students, TSC county director Mr Charles Nyauma said the matter would be dealt with immediately by the commission and asked them to continue with their studies and leave the rest to them.

Mr Nyauma later offered a bus from a neighbouring school to take them back to their institution.
