More Than 500 Students Walk Out Of School And Demonstrate Over ‘Bad’ Tea.

Learners at school in Baringo have walked out of the learning institution over alleged mistreatment and corporal punishment by teachers.

Sources indicate that 500 students from Tenges High school walked for about 30 kilometres to Kabarnet town demanding immediate transfer of their principal. The school has a population of 1,200.

These students presented their grievances to Deputy County Commissioner Reuben Ratemo at Kabarnet Stadium.

Boys are said to have walked out of the school on Sunday midnight but arrived in Kabernet town yesterday at 7am( Monday)

that their tea didn’t have enough milk, unlike before where they would drink ‘rich’ tea.

“We would like our principal to be transferred, how can someone from a Day School come and head a big school like Tenges, this is not fair,” said one of the students.

They equally had complaints the school library being too small.
