A group of angry parents locked out the headteacher of Suna Primary School in Homa Bay County, Kenya, over poor exam results.
The school had a poor performance in last year’s KCPE exam, attaining a mean score of 213 with only three out of 18 candidates getting above 250 marks.
The parents accused the headteacher, Peter Anyal, of running down the institution ever since he was posted there seven years ago.
While speaking to the Standard (A local news outlet), the School patron Mr Godrey Ombogo accused Mr Anyal of mishandling the school funds and not engaging the board in decision making. Godrey Ombogo said;
“In the whole of 2019, he did not hold a single meeting with the parents and Board of Management (BoM).”
The parents said they would camp at the school gate up to the end of the week to ensure Mr Anyal does not access his office.
Earlier today, parents flocked and locked the staff room, the head teacher’s office and the main gate making such areas inaccessible.
The headteacher, Mr Anyal, however, did not report to school and efforts to seek his comments proved futile after he declined to speak on phone.
Homa Bay County TSC Director Grace Amira said she had not received the complaints in her office.
“Let me enquire about the problem from our officers in the sub-county,” Ms Amira said.
