A student who was caught with a loaf of bread stolen from the dining hall has been suspended and his parents ordered to pay 1,000 loaves of bread for all the students.
The student from Muhoho High School was also ordered to clear all his school fees arrears before reporting back to school.
According to the suspension letter, the Form Three student is accused of stealing the bread on Thursday last week.
“Stealing a loaf of bread from the dining hall,” the letter in part reads.
The suspension letter was shared on social media and elicited varied opinions.

A scheme of making money, or not buying breakfast for the kids. That’s too much.

That’s the school’s policy. It is important that they are followed in an age where corporal punishment is inapplicable.

I was a guardian at Meru School where a child’s ‘punishment’ is actually the parent’s. The punishment was cash convertible. Twelve students each bought two rolls of barbed wire and a DVD player for losing ONE DVD player& leaving school through the fence #SystemYaMajambazi
