MP proposes thorough caning for striking students

Uriri MP Mark Nyamita at Awendo East SDA


Uriri MP Mark Nyamita has instructed residents in the constituency to deal with students whose schools will report indiscipline cases.

This is after the constituency reported rise in indiscipline cases where students allegedly set their dormitories on fire.

Nyamita told parents and villagers around schools which will report unruliness from students to cane then if they attempted to get out of the school.

“We will talk to you not to burn, but if you burn, don’t attempt to get out of the school. I have instructed villagers from around the school to cane you properly,” said Nyamita.

According to the MP parents and the community around the schools where students burnt down their structures incurred a lot of costs and the community was not going to sit back and watch.

“The cost of constructing even a single classroom takes a lot of energy even from parents and even us who are tasked with the responsibility of leadership,” said the MP.

The MP warned that students will be forced to remain in the schools when they burn them so that they feel the pinch of their actions.

But Nyamita urged parents and teachers to also listen to their students to reduce cases of indiscipline in schools.

The legislator said that some schools were subjecting their students to full time learning which was not healthy.

“Teachers should also allow their students to engage in co-curricular activities and have outings and innings so that they ease the tension of books,” he said.

 He also urged locals not to interfere with the management of schools as it hindered the delivery of the leaders.

He was speaking during the lauch or Uriri Constituency strategic plan at Rapogi high school.
