There was drama in Migori County when parents stormed a school over the fencing of a playground.
The parents at Nyikendo Primary school in Suna East went straight to the office of the deputy principal Mr. John Hamisi and roughed him up. The aggrieved parents stormed the secondary school demanding to know why the primary school’s playground had been fenced off leaving no space for their children.
Mr Omondi who is the school chairman said that the playground had to be fenced since the secondary and primary school were using the same field “The parents do not understand why the playground is fenced and pupils cannot access it as it has been the norm in the past. The school has been sharing the field with the secondary students,”
It is not clear whether injuries were sustained in the violent scuffle which sparked demonstrations from the pupils who demanded their playing field back.
