The student is expected to be charged with murder

Mokwerero Secondary School

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) condemned the attacks on teachers, as they called for better mentorship of students.
"TSC regrets the recent attacks on our teachers by the leaners in Kisii and the attempted attack by another student in Mokwerero Sec School in Nyamira County. Let’s all Kenyans of goodwill help mentor our children positively," a statement from TSC outlined.
Kisii High school
On Tuesday last week, yet another Form Three student at Kisii High school attacked two teachers - Edwin Mokaya and Elvis Maoto - after they confronted him on tardiness.
Mr. Mokaya had asked the student to kneel down at the staffroom when the student reportedly grabbed a knife and stabbed the teacher on the forehead, back and legs.
Noticing the commotion, Mr. Maoto intervened and was also stabbed and seriously injured before his colleagues managed to restrain the student.
The student was on Wednesday arraigned in court and charged with attempted murder.
