Kenyans react to horrific bullying at Alliance High School

Kenyans on the Internet were horrified after details leading to the early retirement of a principal in one of the country’s leading schools emerged.

The brutal stories of bullying and mistreatment of Form One students at the Alliance High School have left many with a bitter taste in their mouths and they have posted different reactions social media after photos of one of the victims became public.

Many feel that the punishment meted out against the principal was too lenient and more action should be taken to curb the vice.

Some said that bullying has been happening (especially) in boys’ boarding schools and many have suffered silently through it. Others were shocked by the things done to the students in the dead of night with the full knowledge of the school’s administration.

Meanwhile, Education Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said the bullying incident at the school will be dealt with ‘quietly’ with the school board and other stakeholders

Speaking during the first graduation of Kenya Coast National Polytechnic, Dr Matiang’i said the government is committed to ensure students learn “under conducive and smart environment’

“we are working with the school board, faith-based organisations, Old Boys Association and the Teachers’ Service Commission to ensure that matter is resolved internally,” said Dr Matiang’i.
