Christopher Khaembe a former soldier has opened up and talked about his leadership at Alliance High school.

First and foremost Mr. Khambe talks about his career as a soldier and why he left and opted to become a teacher.The former head of alliance revealed that he left the military following the 1982 coup.

According to him when he joined alliance High school it was a busy school and it had a routine similar to that of the military something that made him find it easy in running the school.

Additionally, Mr.Khaembe revealed that to ensure that he molded Alliance students to very responsible students who had respect for one another and also excelled in academics he introduced weekly meetings and gave students a chance to evaluate teachers by indicating their expression to explore their strengths and areas that needed improvements.

He further said that he adjusted the responsibilities of prefects and made form two guardian of form one something that ensured the form ones were safe and comfortable in school.

Also, Khaember said that in a bid to ensure that the prefects carried their responsibilities accordingly he subjected them to an elective process and abolished corporal punishment.

Furthermore, Khaember said that held frequent meetings with teachers so that he could engage the rest of the teachers in running the school.

The former school also said that he kept the student busy by allowing them to take part in sporting activities.He said that apart from this making the students busy it made them more confident.

The ex-Alliance head said that he took Alliance back to position one after a poor performance for ten years .

He also said that he retained 100 poor students in the school until they realised their dreams, for example, Joe Mwaura who is the senior analyst at Bermuda Monetary Authority in the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, Khaemba said that the current Alliance administration should not congest the school with many students so that it becomes easy for teachers to monitor the students. He left the school in 1995 when it had a population of 800 students and went to Kamusinga as a head.
