Ngenia High school closed after fire razes two dormitories

Ngenia High School in Limuru, Kiambu County has been closed indefinitely after fire razed down two dormitories.

The fire broke out on Saturday night while students were watching football and it is suspected to have been caused by an electric fault.

Ngenia High school is the latest school to be closed after a fire razed down two semi- permanent dormitories housing more than 300 students.

Police are said to be reviewing CCTV footage that will guide investigations into the incident.

Meanwhile, police in Nyahururu are investigating yet another school fire incident in the area, this time round at the Nyahururu Boys High School where a dormitory was burnt on Saturday night. The fire is reported to have started at 7:30 pm leaving 76 students counting losses.

More than 20 schools that have been shut down cross the country, three months to the national examinations.

A section of the clergy is now blaming the latest trend of unrest in schools on questionable family backgrounds.

Bishop David Kamau of Nairobi Catholic Archdiocese wants parents to play a more proactive role in the upbringing of their children attributing societal vices among the youth to neglect and too much freedom without limits.

Bishop Kamau said children should be brought up in an appropriate family atmosphere for future leadership.

While in Gatundu south during the Commissioning of over 200 women into the Catholic Women Association, Bishop Kamau said bad habits in schools are prompted by the ill-mannered family backgrounds.
