Gov’t administrators to be enjoined in fighting school fires

National Government Administration Officers (NGAOs) have been directed to join other front-row actors in addressing school fires and unrest.

Interior Principal Secretary, Dr. (Eng.) Karanja Kibicho has told the administrators to plug into the efforts by other stakeholders towards finding a permanent solution to the trend and facilitate uninterrupted learning within their areas of jurisdiction.

“We are experiencing a spate of school fires across the country. You must move in and lead from the front in mitigating the trend. This looks like a cyclic thing that the Ministry of Education is investigating, and all we can do is to ensure we are as vigilant as we can get,” he said.

The PS who was addressing national government administrators from Kitui County stated that the intention is to ensure active consultations amongst stakeholders so that all existing and emerging issues are dealt with proactively.

These include fatigue and stress among students. He said, “As a Ministry responsible for ensuring that there is order, we have instructed our officers to ensure that the consultation systems within the schools are functional and that the Committees that are supposed to ensure that the teachers, students, and parents are activated.”
