A teacher has been beaten up in a fight with students while in a function involving students from five secondary schools who had converged for a live set book performance in Kilgoris, Narok County.
The teacher, identified as Fred Machokaa who is a teacher in the host school Poroko Secondary School, reportedly spotted some students from Kilgoris Boys School in a “compromising situation” with one of his female students.
Teacher Machokaa saw it well to disperse them,an action that was not taken lightly with the Kilgoris Boys students who outrightly pounced on him with blows and kicks, prompting students from Poroko to come to the aid of their teacher.
According to report by the DCI,three students sustained injuries while property was also destroyed.Two students suffered head, neck and chest injuries and were admitted at a local hospital in fair condition while the third one was treated and discharged in good condition too.
“Students from the visiting school began throwing plastic chairs, pieces of rocks and a hail of other projectiles at their hosts, provoking chaos that left three students seriously injured and property of unknown value destroyed,” the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said adding that “Police officers based at Kilgoris police station had a difficult time containing the riotous students who destroyed the school bus belonging to Poroko, window panes in one of the dormitories and plastic chairs,” detectives
