The death of a teacher is something that should shock the nation as these are the people who help our children excel. Teachers are the backbone of the future of any country and when one is killed, that should bring the country to a standstill.
This morning, reports reaching us, is that a headteacher from South Mugirango in Kisii County, has been killed in an arson attack. The headteacher was burnt alive in her home together with her husband who is retired.
The arson is believed to have been brought about over a land dispute that the teacher had. It is still unclear who she was in dispute with over the land that has caused the loss of life of the teacher.
The South Mugirango Member of Parliament, Sylvanus Osoro mourned the teacher in a social media post. Many more have asked the government to step in quick and bring the perpetrators to book.
The headteacher is from Gekongo Primary School that is in South Mugirango Constituency. Her husband, Moruri Mogoa, is a retired teacher also from the same area. May their souls rest in peace.
