Kenyans on social Media are calling for the arrest of Nyabururu girls Agriculture Teacher Mr. Ombati for allegedly badly injuring a student as form of punishment. This is surely inhuman and must stop.
A picture that is trending in social media calls Fred matiangi to act upon culprit and stop treating students like objects. The real reasons behind punishment are yet to be revealed after the school administration refused to comment on the matter.
Teachers say that when the government outlawed caning in 2001, it created a disciplining gap that made managing learners well-nigh impossible. However, as studies have shown, there is a thin line between punishment and physical abuse, and many of those who go down the path of corporal punishment regularly cross that line.
