A lone student at Kisii school has severally stabbed his two teachers in a bizarre incident never witnessed before at the institution.
The form three student who allegedly reported late to class refused to kneel down as a form of punishment by his teacher, Edwin Mokaya and instead flushed out a knife from his socks and viciously attacked him.
Another teacher, Alvin Maato who came to rescue his colleague was equally stabbed.
School rules stipulate that all students entering the institution from holiday are thoroughly frisked by the administration including use of metal detectors.
The two teachers who sustained serious ,face, head, legs and back injuries were rushed to Rama private hospital in Kisii town where Maato received medication and was discharged.
According to the hospital’s administrator Enock Abobo, Mokaya was admitted pending surgery in the theatre.
Contacted over phone, Kisii county commissioner, Abdirisack Jaldesa confirmed the incident saying the suspect had been arrested and investigations have been launched to determine what could have led to the incident.
Mokaya’s family members condemned the incident and petitioned the authorities to protect teachers by offering psycho-socio support to learners owing to the long covid19 pandemic holiday.
