A student hitting a teacher is a serious incident that merits a serious response. Although the problem occurs infrequently, when it does occur, it can dramatically alter the climate of the classroom and leave its imprint on the teacher and students.
Currently, the police officers from Rongo Sub-County have launched an investigation to apprehend a former class 8 pupil, for allegedly assaulting the school’s head teacher, after he was requested to return the lost book.
According to police reports, Peter Nzizi Musyoki (not the real name) had gone to his former school for clearance when the incident occurred.
The Sub-county Police commander in statements to media said, the student had refused to return the book as one of the requirements before clearance, instead he began beating up his headteacher by hitting him repeatedly using wooden objects.
Eventually, he was subdued and held in the deputy headteacher's office before the officers from Rongo police station came to his arrest.
Upon interrogation, the student confessed that he was intoxicated of bhang and other drugs abuse, which he normally use at home when left alone.
Confirming the incident, the school deputy headteacher said the 16-year-old student was retaking the class eight year, after flunking the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education Examination (KCPE) in the year 2019.
