Heartbroken parents reveal the truth about their son’s death at Chemase Secondary School


The parents of a Form One student at Chemase Secondary School in Kenya revealed that their son died after being subjected to corporal punishment by two of his teachers.

The student and his classmate were punished by one teacher, but a second teacher allegedly unleashed unspeakable wrath on them, caning the other student 14 times and continuously beating the deceased until he ran away.

The student complained of body pains and was rushed to a nearby dispensary before being referred to a hospital where he died the following day.

While preliminary reports delinked the death to the injuries sustained during the punishment, the school board is yet to take responsibility until an official report is revealed.

Two of the teachers accused of administering the punishment are on the run, and the school has been closed indefinitely to avert property damage amid a looming student strike.

The parents have called on the Ministry of Education to address the return of corporal punishment in schools.
