  • A wave of school fires in the country has left parents and other education stakeholders demanding solutions from the government.

    Kenya is witnessing a spike in the cases of unrest in schools, with more than 31 learning institutions having been burnt down this term alone.

    A number of schools have been closed down after dormitories, classrooms and laboratories were torched and in some instances, learners left nursing injuries.

    Where the property has been destroyed, parents will be forced to fork out money to help facilitate the reconstruction of the infrastructure.
