Three More High Schools Set on Fire (Videos)

To yet another sad incident, three more high schools were set ablaze last night. This comes hours after the strict warning issued by Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha who said that henceforth, both prefects and teachers on duty shall be answerable to the reported cases.

To the midnight reports, the three high schools are; Kabungut and Chebunyo, both in Bomet County and the third one, Emining Boys high school in Baringo. In Kabungut and Chebunyo, the school dorms were set on fire respectively at around 9:00 pm and 10:00 pm.

Although the fire fighting machine failed on its arrival, the team evacuated a few valuables belonging to the students in Kabungut's Horeb dorm. Sadly, the same was impossible for Chebunyo's dormitory since the fire extinguisher was at Kabungut that time.

At Emining Boys, Elgon dormitory was set on ablaze at around 9:30 pm. The causes of the fires are yet to be established. Below are some of the viral photos on social media platforms. In the end, click the links to see the videos too.

While speaking in Kisumu, Prof Magoha lamented the country-wide escalating cases arguing that the law would soon catch up with all rogue students caught either planning to or setting school property on fire.

"We shall hold the prefects and teachers on duty accountable when there are school fires. The children should know that this crime will haunt them for the rest of their lives", said Prof George Magoha.
