Students Attack Teacher In Kilgoris

Reading Time: 1 minute

Two students are admitted at a Kilgoris hospital following a fistfight pitting students from two schools in Transmara, Narok county, West of Nairobi.

The students were part of a group of five schools that had converged at Poroko Secondary school for a live set books performance on Sunday before the show dissolved into acrimony followed by full-blown violence.

Trouble began when the teacher on duty, identified as Fred Machokaa, spotted some boys from Kilgoris boys school in a compromising situation with one of his female students.

Upon urging them to disperse, the seemingly agitated boys descended on him with blows and kicks, prompting students from Poroko to come to the aid of their teacher.

As a result, students from the visiting school began throwing plastic chairs, pieces of rocks, and a hail of other projectiles at their hosts, provoking chaos that left three students seriously injured and property of unknown value destroyed.

"Two students suffered head, neck, and chest injuries and were admitted at a private hospital in Nyangusi, in fair condition, while a third was treated at Kilgoris sub-county hospital where he was treated and discharged in fair condition. The three young men were aged between 18 and 21," said the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

During the 5 pm incident, Police officers at Kilgoris police station had difficulty containing the riotous students who destroyed the school bus belonging to Poroko, window panes in one dormitory, and plastic chairs.

Investigations into the incident are still ongoing.
