CHESAMIS BOYS has been closed indefinitely after damaging several cars belonging to teachers who were in school yesterday.
This after boys claimed teachers were mainly in school on Sunday to watch the only SCHOOL TV that was broadcasting live soccer games and keeping them in class for preps.
Media reports are that the cause of the riots were that the school administration had changed the entertainment hours from night time to daytime.
Truth is that entertainment in most boarding schools during weekends usually involves watching movies or English Soccer teams as from 4 pm until 11 pm. But CHESAMIS school in trying to be in tandem with covid 19 protocols decided that boys can watch TV in the early afternoon and go for preps at night. This angered the boys, especially because a big game of Liverpool vs Man u was scheduled.
The damage was massive at the National school that is CHESAMIS boys in Bungoma as , two cars one for the principal and another one for a teacher had their windows and screens shattered. All school offices ransacked and heavily damaged., all window panes on the tuition block are broken, the ICT room damaged and vandalised, mostly motherboards missing. The TV damaged.
Teachers who were in the staffroom enjoying 4 o’clock tea and watching English soccer using the school TV in the staffroom had to flee for dear lives. Neighborhood schools like Kasoko and others also joined in the strike. At Kimilili Boys gunshots were heard as police battled with students.
Kindly teachers. Wachaneni na TV za shule. Invest in a good tv and a decoder. Or if you must watch soccer visit your nearest bar or local and enjoy the game. Keep off school during weekends. The students at Chesa claim teachers come to school to watch their TV and while telling them to read.
Teach and go home.
