Parents close primary school


Parents of a primary school in Rongai, Nakuru County, have closed down the institution until Teachers Service Commission’s (TSC) decision to transfer the head teacher is reversed.

Burgei Primary School committee and parents yesterday led over 400 pupils in a six kilometre walk to education offices in Rongai protesting over the transfer of the school head  Steve Ndung’u.

The parents sought audience with area DEO, but they were not  able to meet him. “The school was leading in the division because of Ndung’u and he has just started the foundation of Burgei Secondary School classrooms, which he initiated last year,” said Wilfred Mutai, the school chairman.
