Education CS George Magoha has ordered the temporary closure of Precious Talents Primary School whose classroom collapsed killing seven pupils and injuring 64 others.
Mogoha stated that the school will be closed until Monday after which an informed communication shall be made.
The CS further took responsibility for the incident saying that he cannot blame the ministry officials for the tragedy.
” I must defend my quality assurance officers.. something like this can slip your sight.. I will take responsibility but I will continue to make sure that all things are done in the right manner,” said Magoha.
The owner of the school has since pointed an accusing finger to a sewer line construction that was recently launched.
He says the construction of the sewer line weakened the foundation of the wall hence the collapse.
