The protest was marked by a significant police presence, preventing the parents from entering the school and escalating tensions.

The parents voiced their concerns about potential health risks due to inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene practices in the school, which they fear may have contributed to the student’s death.

Chief Principal Dinah Cheruiyot said there had been no prior incidents of food poisoning in the school and emphasized the institution’s commitment to student health and safety standards.

“We have not had any food poisoning issues in the school whatsoever, so we cannot apportion blame to the school administration in this matter,” the principal stated. “Gastrointestinal issues don’t lead to death unless left unattended over a long period. We have a comprehensive approach to health matters, with two community nurses and a nurse aide for staff.”
