Nyamira Parents Eject Principal and Teachers Over Poor KCSE Results

In a shocking incident, irate parents armed with crude weapons stormed Mwamogusii Secondary School in Nyamira County, forcibly ejecting the Principal and teachers from the school compound. The enraged parents, expressing their dissatisfaction with the poor 2023 KCSE results, subjected the educators to humiliation by forcing them to kneel and frog-marching them while jeering.

Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) Nyamira branch Executive Secretary, Lewis Nyakweba, has urgently called for intervention from Education CS Ezekiel Machogu and Interior CS Kithure Kindiki, emphasizing that teacher harassment cases are escalating.

Nyakweba expressed deep concern, stating, “This is serious, and we will not sit back and watch our colleagues being harassed by parents.” He instructed the affected teachers not to report to their stations until the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) ensures their security by transferring them to other locations.

When asked about the possibility of reconciliation between teachers and parents, Nyakweba noted that the hostility has intensified, and the only solution is to transfer the teachers. He emphasized that vilifying teachers as incompetent would erode confidence, impacting students’ performance in future exams.

The KUPPET boss urged parents to respect teachers and acknowledge their role in ensuring students achieve satisfactory exam results. He condemned violence as a primitive solution and called for peaceful consultations to address concerns.

Nyakweba appealed to teachers to remain resilient, considering their profession a noble calling, despite the challenges they face. The incident highlights the need for constructive dialogue and understanding between parents and educators to foster a positive learning environment for students.
