Just In: Yet Another Popular Boys' School on Fire (VIDEO)

Tens of schools have so far reported dormitory fires. It has also been established that majority of the schools are being torched by students who later end up being sent home.

As a result of the cases of unrests, the Governor of Kakamega County Wycliffe Oparanya has issued a proposal stating that students who are being involved in burning schools should receive a tougher punishment. Oparanya's proposal comes at a time when over 30 schools have been closed following unrests and dormitory fires. Schools like Buruburu Girls Secondary School, Kakamega Boys, Chavakali Boys, Kahuhia Girls among others were left counting losses after dormitories were torched.

Oparanya was speaking at a burial of Ayuma Bukaya on 6th November. According to the governor, every student found culpable of burning school infrastructure should serve a jail term of not less that sixty years.

He further added that the government is devoid of funds and will not be in a position to repair the burnt buildings in schools adding that parents will be liable.

Despite this, another school has been torched and is currently on fire. Cheplaskei Boys High School is located near Eldoret Town, Uasin Gishu County. Check the links below to see the video clip.
