Students to get clearance before transfer says Education Cabinet Secretary

Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has directed school heads not to admit learners transferring from schools destroyed due to unrest.

Dr.Matiang’i said that all students seeking transfers must obtain clearance letters from sub-county director of education to ascertain that they did not participate in the destruction of their schools.

He said the parents will have to fund the repair of schools destroyed by their children since he “would not spend the Ministry of Education resources to repair destroyed schools.”

This came after students at Itierio in Kisii County went on rampage on saturday night and burnt seven dotrmitories after being denied a chance to watch ongoing Euro 2016 tournament
