Parents threaten to move to court to solve school stalemate

Parents at Jamuhuri primary school in Nakuru town are now weighing the option of seeking legal redress as the stalemate at the public school entered its second week.

Through the school’s board of management and the parents association, the parents are now accusing the government of sheer laxity in handling the issue that has paralyzed learning and kept pupils out of school for the second week running.

Through their Chairperson Dennis Okomol, the parents have remained adamant that they will only allow their children back to school if and when the headteacher Beatrice Nyawira is transferred.

Last week parents withdrew their children from the school before leading them in a peaceful demonstration to the regional commissioner’s office where they aired their grievances

Efforts by the Nakuru County commissioner to resolve the stalemate yielded no fruit as the parents stood firm in demanding the transfer of the headteacher who they accuse of mismanagement among other issues.

The parents have now said that should the crisis persist for long they will have no option but t move to court

They are however exploiting other options of solving the problem including engaging the political leadership led by area Member of Parliament David Gikaria.
