The ministry of education has been left in a dark corner as more fire incidents are reported this evening despite the midterm decision.
The current regularly and condemnable reported fire occurrences from Kenyan secondary schools are becoming heartbreaking news.
In October, several schools were reported to be affected by fire incidents which led to the destruction of millions of properties in the affected schools. The month was rapped up with worrying occurrences at Buruburu Girls high school when girls were seen fighting to rescue their lives jumping down from a high burning building.
The month of September is not exceptional. The new months has commenced with similar sad reports of fire incidents from Kenyan schools.
Today evening, two more secondary schools have seen their dormitories engulfed by fierce fire. The students in the two schools are left stranded in the cold.
Kahuhia Girls High school (Murang’a County) dormitory has been reduced to harshes by a fierce fire.
There are no casualties reported so far, the school is set to suffer big losses due to the fire breakout.
Elsewhere, St. Joseph Nyabigena from Kisii County is suffering the same burden tonight. The school’s dormitory was set on fire this evening destroying property worth millions of money.
The fire incident at Nyabigena Boys was reported just hours after the Kahuhia Girls sudden occurrence. The cause of the fire and casualties reports are yet to be released by the school administration.
The two school fire reports have come after the ministry of education took a sudden decision allowing students to go for a half-term break aiming at stopping this frequent unfortunate news from Kenyan secondary schools.
The Ministry introduced a midterm break for this term which was not scheduled before to curb student unrest in schools. The ministry scheduled the midterm break to run from Friday 19th to Tuesday the 23rd of November.
The education sector is now left at a dark corner and could lack explanation concerning this continued happenings despite the provision of a midterm break.
The ministry decided students that were feeling overburdened by an 11 week consecutive learning period with no break hence the need for the stakeholders to introduce some break within.
What is the reason behind the fire incident and what do you think should be done to stop these discouraging fire incidents from schools? Leave your comments.
