  • Mr. J.D. Otiende minister for Education in Kenya has issued a statement saying;” Pupils in several schools have refused to study or obey school rules and in certain cases have walked out of school. Reports indicate in one or two other schools may contemplate similar actions. “He later said “Government is determined to raise the standards of education. For this reason discipline in schools will be maintained, and acts of ill-discipline will lead only to the expulsion of pupils, waste of public funds and effort, and ultimately grave disappointment to pupils ,parents and the country in general.”
