A video has emerged of Ambira Boys High school form four leavers insulting Education CS Amina Mohammed and her Interior counterpart Fred Matiang’i.
The excited students are seen celebrating, ostensibly because of finishing the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education exams. They lit a bonfire using their books.
The students in the clip, probably captured by one of the students, shout they had cheated the exam and even dare the CS to take action.
The learners took turns to insult the two ministers in unprintable words. “Shule huisha,tumeiba (We are done with school…we cheated in exams),” they shouted.
Comments by the school leavers came in the wake of government’s stringent measures to curb exam cheating.
Irked Kenyans demanded the arrest of the said students.
“Matiangi will not let it pass but sadly even the innocent will suffer….these are the boys we are about to welcome to the society,” a twitter user said.
“They are drunk! It pains me how parents struggle to ensure such in disciplined kids get education. It pains me so much that the pain of the punishment will still cascade down to the disappointed parents. The only present a kid can give a struggling parent is discipline and good results,” another said.
Ambira school hit the headlines in July 2018 when a fire razed a dormitory leaving students without places to sleep. At least 130 learners lost all their property.
There are reports that detectives have been dispatched to the school to probe the incident.
