How a Dumpsite Near a School in Kisii Led to a Bee Attack on 49 Pupils

There’s a serious issue that affects one of our schools in Kisii. You see, there is a dumpsite right next to Kari D.E.B Primary School, and it is not only an eyesore, but also a health hazard. Just the other day, some poor kids were attacked by bees near the dumpsite, and they had to be rushed to the hospital. Can you imagine the pain and fear they must have felt? I don’t know about you, but I would not want my child to go to such a school.

Now, you may be wondering why the dumpsite is there in the first place. Well, according to the Sub-County’s Director of Education, Cyrus Juma, it is the responsibility of the county government to relocate it. He said that he has raised the issue with them several times, but nothing has been done. He also praised the teachers and medical staff for their quick action during the bee attack. He said that they saved the lives of many students who could have suffered worse consequences.

The school head teacher, Abel Maseno, also gave his account of what happened. He said that some students went to look for loquats near the dumpsite during lunchtime break. You know how kids are, they love to explore and have fun. But little did they know that they were disturbing a swarm of bees that were not happy with their presence. The bees chased them back to the school, and started stinging anyone they could find. It was a chaotic scene, with children screaming and running for cover.

One of the parents, Nathan Nyamweya, said that he was worried about the safety of his child and others. He said that the dumpsite was not only a source of bees, but also of other diseases and pests. He said that he and other parents have asked the county government to move the dumpsite away from the school, but they have not received any response. He said that they felt neglected and ignored by the authorities.

So, what can we do about this situation? Well, first of all, we need to raise awareness about this issue. We need to share this story with our friends and family, and ask them to do the same. We need to make some noise on social media, and tag the relevant officials and leaders. We need to demand action from our county government, and hold them accountable for their duties. We need to show them that we care about our children’s education and health, and that we will not tolerate any negligence or incompetence.

Secondly, we need to support the school and the affected students. We need to send them messages of encouragement and sympathy. We need to donate some money or supplies if we can afford it. We need to visit them if we have the time and opportunity. We need to show them that they are not alone, and that we are here for them.

Thirdly, we need to learn from this incident and prevent it from happening again. We need to educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of dumpsites and bees. We need to avoid going near such places, and respect the environment and its creatures. We need to keep our surroundings clean and safe, and report any problems or violations to the authorities.

This is not just a story about a school in Kisii. This is a story about our country and our future. This is a story about how we treat our environment and our children. This is a story about how we stand up for our rights and our responsibilities. This is a story about how we make a difference in our society.
