Five St. Augustine Kapyego Mixed Secondary School teachers are nursing injuries after an unknown number of students attacked them on Thursday night over lack of clean toilets at the school.
The teachers, who were in the staffroom at 8pm, had to scamper for safety, when the students stormed the staffroom and hurled stones at them.
Elgeyo Marakwet Kenya Union Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Executive Secretary General, John Chesergon, condemned the students’ attack on teachers, saying it was the third time the learners were attacking their educators.
Chesergon said the teachers had, in the past, filed formal complaints with the school’s board of management and administration, but no action was taken against their aggressors.
The teachers have thus resorted to filing their latest complaints with their employer, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), asking the TSC to transfer them.
Chesergon has asked the teachers to stay at home till their grievances are heard, and addressed.
The students who attacked the five St. Augustine Kapyego teachers are yet to be identified and legal action taken against them.
