On 18th Thursday, students reopened school after a long half-term break due to August 9 general elections. The minister for education prof George Magoha had postponed reopening from August 10 due to delayed presidential results.
Today afternoon we have just received news that a teacher has been arrested for assaulting a pupil who failed to complete homework. According to the source, Ndungu Nyoro who posted it on his Facebook page, the teacher is from Ngurubani primary school in Mwea, Kirinyaga county.
