Pupils Blame Teacher after School Stampede Killed 14 Learners in Kenya


Following a stampede that killed 14 learners at Kakamega Primary School in Kenya, the rest of the survived learners have now blamed the school teacher to have been the cause of the incident.

The pupils claimed that the teacher was chasing them to leave the institution after classes in the evening when the incident occurred.

However, there has not been an official explanation yet on the cause of the Monday stampede that left many in shock. Grieving parents of the pupils who died in the stampede on Tuesday morning gathered at the Kakamega County Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary to identify their bodies.

At the same time, other anxious parents camped at the school from early Tuesday following the Monday evening tragedy. The country’s Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha, Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya arrived at the school Tuesday morning to assess the situation.

Pupils and their parents were also assembled in the school waiting to be addressed by education officials and other leaders.

Earlier, the parents had been barred from accessing the school compound and waited anxiously outside the gate. They were later asked to register with their children’s class teachers.
