Education CS George Magoha closes Precious Talents School for 4 days following collapse of classroom that killed 7 pupils

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha on Thursday revoked Precious Talents School's operating license following the tragedy where eight students died.

The CS explained that the school had violated the terms that were given when the school was registered by the government.

According to Prof. Magoha, documents held by the Ministry of Education indicate that the school can accommodate a maximum of 340 pupils while admission records indicated that the school had close to 900 pupils.

CS Magoha also announced that all enrolled pupils at the school would be transferred to Ngong Forest School, Jamuhuri Primary School and Riruta Primary School.

CS Magoha has been touring various scholls in parts of Nairobi inspecting the safety standards and has so far ordered closure of two facilities.

On Wednesday he closed St Catherine’s Children Educational Centre in Kibra and on Thursday, Pama Academy in Kangemi, Westlands.

St Catherine's 207 were transferred to Ayany Estate Primary in Kibera while 472 Pama pupils were transferred to Kihumbuini and New Kihumbuini schools.
