While being interviewed on K24 TV, the community around Kaputir Sec school in Turkana county have asked TSC to transfer or sack teachers for being negligent after a form 4 student died while his five colleagues suffered blindness after allegedly consuming hand sanitizer.
The students are said to have consumed the hand sanitizer on Tuesday, February 16, inside their science laboratory.
The parents at Kaputir Secondary School expressed their disappointment and demanded that the principal resigns, and the Board of Management sent home. But most important they claimed the science teacher is to blame and must be sacked and jailed.
The school principal refused to speak on the matter.
Let me sound a warning to the community, the MINISTRY and to TSC, dare touch or implicate any teacher for this tragedy and we will bring learning in the entire KENYA to a halt.
Teachers did NOT go to college to learn how to deal with drug addicts, porn stars and petty thieves of SANITIZERS.
The work of teachers is to teach and go home to their houses, children, husbands, wives, concubines, churches, or mipango yao ya kando. Let the principal and Magoha account for their hefty salaries by employing watchmen, maids or hiring police to guard students from taking sanitizers.
Rest in peace Kijana…
