CS Magoha gives strict ultimatum over battering of students at Nairobi School

Magoha makes demands over Nairobi School saga

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha has ordered teams investigating the battering of students at Nairobi School and Sawagongo High to table findings by next week.

His statement comes amid a scandal that rocked Nairobi School where a student was left needing surgery from injuries inflicted by prefects.

The team includes four officers from Teachers Service Commission, six from the Nairobi regional education office, Mr Caspal Maina, who is school principal and Nairobi Westlands Sub-County Education Director Phillip Chirchir.

The inhumane acts happening in the school were exposed in a WhatsApp group after a parent narrated how Nairobi School reported to her that her son was sick.

Boy needs supervision  

The Form Two student's parents said they went to get their son only to discover that he had been battered and abused since he was in form one.

According to the boy's mother, the boy needs supervision when he eats and even brushing his teeth.

"He is even back to peeing in bed something he had never done. He has gone mute and can’t even name the prefects who beat him," the lady posted in a WhatsApp group.

However, the school's administration has denied knowledge of the assault saying, "We only learnt of the alleged allegations on social media."
