Another tragedy has struck the Kenyan education system as parents of Namajala Primary School in Trans Nzoia County take to the streets demanding answers after their child died due to punishment by a teacher. This comes just days after the shocking news of a Form One student who died after being beaten by teachers in Chemase.

According to reports, the pupil from Namajala Primary School was allegedly beaten by a teacher and subsequently fell ill. The child's condition worsened, and they were rushed to a nearby hospital where they were pronounced dead upon arrival.
The incident has sparked outrage among the community, with parents and concerned citizens calling for swift action to be taken against the responsible parties. Many are calling for the teacher in question to be held accountable for their actions, and for the government to step in and address the larger issue of corporal punishment in schools.
It is deeply concerning that these incidents continue to occur despite the government's ban on corporal punishment in schools. It is crucial that the authorities take action to ensure that such tragedies never happen again. The safety and well-being of our children should always be a top priority, and no child should ever have to endure abuse in any form.
The families of the victims deserve justice, and it is our hope that swift and decisive action will be taken to bring those responsible to account for their actions. We must work together as a society to ensure that our schools are safe spaces where children can learn and grow without fear of harm or abuse.
