For a long time, Mukuru Primary located in Embakasi South had been operating as a private institution going by the name Goodrich Schools admitting pupils from rich and renowned families only in Daima Ward.
On January 6 however, the government gave it back to the Community and rebranded it Mukuru Community Centre, MCC attracting pupils from all walks of life leading to congestion.
The school is temporarily being managed by a select committee which consists of community individuals.
HIGH NUMBERS BUT LOCKED OFFICES
By Thursday, a total of 3, 006 pupils had enrolled with MCC. According to Otieno Christopher, one of the Committee members, the majority of the pupils around that locale have shifted from their former schools to Mukuru Primary School.
Mr Otieno also added that the committee was obliged to halt the admission of more pupils two weeks ago due to the overwhelming numbers.
What is however devastating is the fact that the former school director and principal’s office remain shut. The committee can only access the reception area.
The committee is, therefore, imploring upon the former administrators to hand in the keys to the offices and clear their staff so that they can set the ball rolling.
The former Mukuru Community Centre in Imara Daima ward in Embakasi South-Nairobi was initiall a public primary and secondary School which admitted students living around that area.
It was however taken over by a private investor and rebranded Goodrich Schools.
The land that the school sits on initially houses a church, an administration camp and MCC.
