Maranda high school has sent home all the 2021 candidates after they allegedly threatened to burn the school following mock exam that is slated for 6th December 2021.
The internal mock exams, which were scheduled for Monday, December 6, have since been postponed to a later date, which will be communicated.
According to Siaya County Director of Education, Nelson Sifuna, the students had, on Tuesday night, threatened to torch learning or accommodation facilities within the school.
Standard has reported that one of the teachers of Maranda High School, who sought anonymity, said the decision to send the learners home was arrived at on Thursday morning.
He said: “The Board of Management (BOM) met, and decided to send the students home to avert possible destruction of school property,”.
The anonymous teacher further revealed that students had written the threats on toilet walls. It was their schoolmates, informed the teacher.
Decision to send Maranda High 2021 flag bearers home comes barely three weeks after all students were readmitted back to school following a dormitory fire on November 7.
