Kakamega Senator Bony Khalwale has slammed Mukumu Girls’ High School principal Fridah Ndolo for allegedly terming the media as toxic following the school’s closure after food poisoning.
In a statement, Khalwale insinuated impunity on the school management for blaming the school closure on “toxic environment already created by media”.
In a letter dated April 3, 2023, alleged to be from the senior principal, Ms Ndolo claimed that the government “decided that students break off to heal of the toxic environment already created by media.”
“This is to notify you that following consultation of the Ministry of Education directors and TSC directors it has been decided that students break off to heal of the toxic environment already created by media. Kindly ensure your daughter receives medical attention and report with a medical report on any underlying issue from MOH from a government hospital. Once the board sits and deliberates they will resume once the conditions are corrected,” the letter read in part.
Mukumu Girls’ High School was closed indefinitely on Monday, April 3, 2023, following the death of two students, who were taken i*l after a food poisoning incident.
“Mukumu Girls High school has been closed indefinitely after two students died and over 500 others infected with bacteria infections after consuming i*********d food and contaminated water,” Obiero said.
As of Monday, at least 30 students were still f******g for their lives at St Elizabeth’s Mukumu Mission Hospital
