It has been a while since we last experienced fire razing down buildings into unrecognizable ashes. Two dormitories have been burnt down in kisii county following fire accident.
On 18th, Fire razed down two dormitories in Sameta Primary school found in Kisii county.
According to reports, there was no pupil who was injured while a property worth millions of Kenya shillings was destroyed.
There were a total of 82 pupils who used to occupy the two dorms cumulatively. It is said that none of the pupils was injured by the fires. They all escaped to see their belongings turn to ashes on the Monday night incident.
The Deputy County Commissioner for Sameta sub county Mr Muroki Muyuri said it was very fortunate that no pupil was injured in any way.
“As an education support body, we are in the process of investigating the exact cause of the arson and will inform you in due cause”, said Munyuri.
During this time, there was a power break up in the school, which means that the cause is not related to electricity break up.
The county commissioner also said that the DCI officers had already visited the scene and could provide a report on the main causative agent for the arson.
At the same time, the head teacher Mr Ibrahim Ondati was reluctant to speculating on the possible cause of the fire when various media personnel visited the school.
All heads of institutions in the country are asked to be all eyes especially a period like this when there’s no time for learners to waste.
The syllabus is pushed to completion by all means, the year is short and the learners are likely to be exhausted.
Whenever learners are exposed to much work, together with the pressure of exams, they can be prompted to fall into mental problems like stress.
A stressed learner can easily cause trouble in the institution.
