A dramatic scene unfolded on Wednesday morning as an elected member of parliament lectured and chased TSC officers and the area District Commissioner who wanted to close down a secondary school claiming it is not registered.
Emurua Dikir legislator, Johanna Ngeno, had a rough time as he countered the government officers who wanted 80 students evacuated from Soget secondary school. The officers argued that the school is not yet registered and therefore it should not be operating.
Ngeno was agitated by this action and ended up chasing the officers from the school compound as parents of the students watched.

"You have no authority to close down this school. The registration of this school is currently ongoing and we are at the final stages with the PS in the ministry of education." Said Ngeno.
"I don't understand what the DC is doing here and there is no case of insecurity. Panda gari yako uende ukapigane na pombe. For TSC officers, just leave the school, we will write to you later when we need teachers. For now, you have no business here," said the lawmaker.
At this point, the parents were celebrating as the officers left the school compound in humiliation. This is not the first time that the MP is confronting government officers.
The new school was built by the lawmaker through the National Government Constituency Development Fund (NG-CDF). The secondary school has just started to operate and has so far admitted 80 students at form one.
