Parents of the collapsed school demonstrate demanding for the release of their teacher
They blamed the government of using the accident to intimidate the teacher.
The angry parents also accused Professor Magoha of being indifferent to their children’s plight.
Aggrieved parents of Precious Top Talents Academy camped outside the Kibera Law Court demanding for the release of their esteemed teacher.
They thronged the building while carrying posters to show their solidarity and support for Mr Moses wainaina.
“Moses is not a murderer since his line of duty is teaching, not architecture,” they said.
The proprietor who is also a teacher was arrested on Thursday following the collapse of part of the school building which killed eight pupils and left several others injured.
The parents further blamed the state of intimidation and opportunism. According to them, the government was taking advantage of the accident to intimidate and harass Moses Wainaina.
Mr Wainaina who was arrested on Thursday evening is held at the Kabete Police Station.
After all, is it not the government’s duty to ensure that all school structures meet the set standards?
Mr Wainaina was arrested for violating the guidelines set to govern schools.
Among other offences, he was accused of enrolling a very high number of pupils and lack of safe physical facilities and employing non-qualified teaching staff.
The school is duly registered to admit 340 learners but the proprietor has disregarded this guideline and admitted 800 pupils.
According to Professor Magoha, lack of compliance renders the registration of the facility null and void.
DO NOT GAG US
A section of parents of Precious Top Talents Academy in Nairobi have accused Professor George Magoha of indifference to their children’s plight.
What aggrieves them most is the directive given by Professor Magoha forcing them to have their children transferred to Ngong’ Forest Primary School, Jamhuri Primary School and Riruta Satellite Primary School.
The closure of the collapsed school was based on the recommendations given by the task force that was set up to determine the safety of pupils following the tragedy.
The parents carried placards in front of former Premier, Raila Odinga Racecourse as they aired their complaints.
They demanded to have their collapsed school reopened and Moses Wainaina, the school proprietor to be released.
They said that Moses Wainaina’s forte is teaching, not architecture.
