The Education Ministry in Nandi has closed down Kapchepsir primary school in Emgwen constituency, owing to the pathetic state of its latrines and classrooms. Speaking to West FM at the school ground during the closure of the school, the School chairman Mr James Kebenei said the Ministry of Education did a good job of prioritizing the safety of the children, terming it a good move.
He said that the school has bought a 3.2 hectares piece of land in another safe place and has built a total of eight classrooms where the children are being relocated to, and he urged well wishers and the government to chip in and offer a helping hand to ensure the children study in a better environment. “So far we have constructed eight classrooms, and two were set up by the Ministry of Education,” he said.
He affirmed that the main problem the school is facing is a lack of enough latrines. The school’s classrooms also have evident cracks on the walls, and also sinking latrines, posing a great risk to pupils.
