The government is probing reports that a commanding academy in Siaya county is denying scholars refections and forcing them to miss classes over freights arrears.
Siaya County Commissioner Jim Njoka said his office had entered reports that Ambira High School was only serving refections to scholars who had paid full freights for first and alternate terms.
The reports say those with arrears were also being locked out of classrooms and made to lie in the playing fields during literacy hours.
