Teacher Was Attacked And Burnt In front Of Her Daughters
The Teachers Service Commission(TSC) has withdrawn all teachers from Ndooni Primary School in Kitui where a teacher was hacked and burned to death after a protest by parents over poor examination results.
TSC Chief Executive Officer Nancy Macharia condemned the incident and condoled with the victim’s family, friends and teachers of the school.
Mrs Macharia further said the commission will not post any teacher to the school until the security of teachers is certain.
Madam Daisy Mbathe Mbaluka was reportedly killed by the parents who then set ablaze her body.
The teacher was allegedly burnt in front of her daughters.
Teachers’ unions including the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teacher’s Union (Kuppet) and the Kenya National Union of Teachers (Knut) also condemned the killing of the teacher and called on the police to speedily investigate the matter and have the culprits face the law.
“We have written to the Ministry of Education to shut down the school, we have also asked TSC to withdraw all teachers from that school and finally we want the DCI to expedite investigations into the henious act and bring the culprits to book,” stated KUPET Secretary general Omboko Milemba in a press conference earlier in the day.
Meanwhile two suspects linked with the lynching of the teacher were today arraigned in court.
Wambua Mwangangi and Kyalo Muli will be detained for 21 days as police continue with investigations.
