The goons are said to steal valuable information from the institutions which they then use to send messages to parents asking for money from them and some have sent the money.
This afternoon, according to reliable reports from Elgeyo Marakwet County, a curious case happened yesterday when a man is said to have approached the school guard seeking audience with the bursar to clear his daughter's fees.
However, as soon as the guard had excused herself for a few minutes, the man is said to have made a run for it with the school's visitors book.
The shocking incident took place at the prestigious extra county school that is known as Kapkenda Girls High School in Elgeyo Marakwet County.
After a few minutes of stealing the visitors book, the perpetrator is said to have sent messages to over 100 parents of the school asking for money which ranged from 1,000 and 5,000 Kenya shillings to cater to their child's needs.
