NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 18 – The Ministry of Education has sent a team to Lugusi Boys Secondary School to probe an incident where a student killed his colleague.
Through a statement, Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed said the team will be seeking to establish the circumstances under which the student lost his life.
“The Ministry of Education is saddened with what happened in Lugusi Boys Secondary School in Kakamega County where a student killed his colleague during a fracas,” she said.
She pointed out that a team of counsellors will also go to the school to talk to the students and help them deal with the shocking experience.
“The ministry meanwhile reaffirms the need for uttermost discipline among students as the basis for a conducive teaching and learning environment for both teachers and learners,” she said.
Mohamed further emphasised the need for appropriate discipline of students.
“They needs to be a provision of mechanisms for dealing with conflicts in which ways that promotes instead of disrupting desired environment for learning in schools.”
The incident came following another one in Kibwezi early this week where another secondary school student died after he was accidentally hit by a fellow student while playing football.
