Irate parents in Mutitu, Kitui County on Wednesday killed a Primary School teacher over poor KCPE results.
Madam Daisy Mbathe Mbaluka was reportedly killed by the parents who then set ablaze her body.
The parents reportedly waylaid the the teacher when she was taking her children to school, attacked her and then burnt her to ashes.
The Kenya National Union of Teachers has condemned the incident and demanded that all teachers in the school be relocated.
“For unknown reasons, parents invaded the school, evicted the teacher, and later ambushed her while she was taking her children to school, killing her instantly, and setting her body aflame,” said KNUT Secretary General Wilson Sossion.
He also urged the Ministry of Education and the Interior Ministry to offer security to teachers and school property “before the situation runs out of control.”
