Written By: Kennedy Epalat

Education officials have opened investigations into bullying claims that have rocked Nairobi School after a parent said her son was left needing surgery from injuries inflicted by prefects.

Education Cabinet Secretary Prof George Magoha has directed the management of Nairobi School and Sawagongo High School to table a report in his office by next week as to why students in those institutions were battered.

Speaking during an impromptu visit at Nanyuki Primary School and DEB Nanyuki on Tuesday, Magoha said the reports should indicate who did it and what actions have been taken.
