Jane Mmbone Appointed As New Principal At Mukumu Girls High School. The government has instituted measures to stop the spread of a disease in Mukumu Girls High School and the entire Kakamega County, according to Cabinet Secretary for Education Ezekiel Machogu.
On April 15, 2023, Machogu revealed during a tour of Mukumu Girls High School in Kakamega County that a borehole would be dug for the school and water treatment would begin right away.
The Cabinet Secretary acknowledged changes in the institution’s management and leadership following extensive consultations with numerous stakeholders.
The board of trustees of the school has been dismissed, and a new board will assume control on Monday. Sister Jane Mmbone Mukoya has also been chosen as the school’s new principal.
Although it has not yet been determined whether the food contains bacteria, the government has also mandated that any food kept in the school’s stores be destroyed.
Prior to the students’ return to school, two weeks worth of fresh food will be acquired.
Later, Machogu paid a visit to Mukumu Girls students receiving care at the referral hospital.
Only 12 of the 64 pupils who were admitted on the first day are still there. 8 additional counties and 4 in Kakamega
The Cabinet Secretary assured the affected students that the government will cover the expense of their medical care. In agreement with Kakamega Governor Fernandes Baraza, he added that hospital diagnostics and check-ups will be provided at no cost.
Machogu sent condolences to the four families impacted by the tragedy at Mukumu Girls High School during the same visit.
Governor Baraza visited the school and advised the management to take certain actions, including sinking a new well and getting rid of any contaminated food.
Senator Boni Khalwale declared in a statement that the county director of education had been replaced, the school’s principal had been fired, and the school board of management had been dissolved.
In order to supply the school with potable water, the government has also allotted Ksh 5 million for the drilling of a borehole.
Sister Jane Mmbone, the new principal, has been welcomed and assured of assistance in her new position.
Many people called for swift action to be taken to stop the disease from spreading after hearing about the tragedy at the school, which shocked the nation.
The government’s actions are intended to stop the sickness from spreading throughout the school and Kakamega County.
Concerns had been expressed about the situation at Mukumu Girls High School, and many people had criticized the government for its tardiness in acting.
However, the government’s quick response and the Cabinet Secretary’s visit will go a long way toward resolving the issue.
It is a positive development that the government is drilling a borehole for the school and treating the county’s water. Additionally to the pupils, the entire community will gain from this.
It is evident that the government is committed to ensuring that the school is properly run because the board of management for the school was disbanded and a new principal was appointed.
Although it may seem like an excessive measure, it is important to stop the disease from spreading further by destroying all the food in the stores.
Before the students return to class, fresh food will be purchased, which is a wise decision.
It is excellent that the Cabinet Secretary visited the hospital to check on the injured students and made a commitment to cover the expense of their care.
This will significantly lessen the financial burden that comes with obtaining medical care for the afflicted families.
The steps performed should enhance the Mukumu Girls High School learning environment.
