The only decent structures left standing in the institution are a number of blocks of administration units and a couple of modern pit latrines that were put up last year, courtesy of businessman Mr Rigathi Gachagua, who is an old boy.
School head teacher Mr Josephat Kahea says the school did not have money left for development and they appealed to Gachagua, an old boy, who donated Sh800,000 to help put up the structures.
“We were facing imminent closure and the only option left was to call on well wishers to help us,” says Mr Kahea.
A visit to the school gave two different sides of a coin. On entering the gate, one is faced with ramshackle structures some with spiked roofing, no windows and doors and potholed floor.
The rear side of the school is lined up with pit latrines that are positioned just next to an old building which Winnie Mwangi, a parent, says wore out even before construction was completed.
