Former Pupil Beats Headteacher to a Pulp When Asked to Return Books Allegedly Lost Before He Clears

A manhunt has been launched by Police in Rongo Sub-County after a class eight leaver attacked and seriously injured his former headteacher when he was asked to return books he allegedly lost before he could continue with the clearance process.

Rongo Sub-County Police Commander Mr Peter Okiring confirmed the incident and said the student went back to his former school, Arundo Primary, and when asked to return books he descended on the teacher with a crude weapon that was in his possession.

“He stormed the office and found the headteacher alone. Other teachers were busy with end of term exams in various classrooms and only knew about the attack hours later,” Mr Okiring said as quoted by a local media house.

Mr Kepher Onsongo was found unconscious by his colleagues who later rushed him to Nyamarambe health centre before he was referred to Nyangena Hospital in Kisii Sub-County for specialised treatment.

A teacher from the school intimated that the boy joined the institution in class seven after he was expelled for his bad behaviour. He also added that the boy was lonely in the school as other pupils were afraid of associating with him.
