As a way of curbing school unrest and crimes that were majorly reported in schools last year, the Friends Church in Kenya is donating Bibles and Hymn Books to all schools affiliated to the Church in Kenya. Speaking during the launch of the programme that was held at Amalemba Friends Church in Kakamega, the Friends Church Kenya presiding clerk Henry Mukwanja said that students get attracted to crime due to lack of Spiritual guidance and they have settled on the idea to cushion them.

Mukwanja explained that schools need to refocus on the spiritual guidance they give to the students to ensure that law and order is maintained all through.

He revealed that as a Church the last time they issued spiritual material to schools was way back in the 70s and thus the need has popped up since a number of students may be missing out on the same. Mukwanja also lauded the idea of re-introducing corporal punishment in schools arguing that caning students helped to shape them and the outcome can be seen presently.

Also present were the Friends Church Kenya chairman Jason Wekesa, the national education secretary Ben Nasikungu, NCCK representatives and other church leaders from various parts of the country.
