Garissa County Commissioner Boaz Cherutich has warned students against attacking teachers in school, stating further that those found guilty of the offence will face the law.
The commissioner noted that several principals in the area have asked to be transferred following threats from their students whenever they try to force them into doing what is right.
Cherutich urged parents and teachers to work together to reduce incidents of school misconduct.
His comments came after a scuffle with a class 6 student left a teacher badly injured and at the verge of losing her hearing ability.
According to reports, the pupil stabbed his teacher in the ear after he was asked why he had failed to attend classes since schools re-opened.
The student is said to have left school only to return shortly after, armed with a knife which he used to attack the female teacher.
