Mukumu Girls Principal Statement Concerning the 11 Hospitalized Students. The principal of Mukumu Girls High School has addressed concerns after hearing that 11 students were hospitalized.
On Saturday, May 13, Sister Jane Mmbone asked parents not to fear because all the girls were safe and normal schooling was continuing.
Mmbone said, “The school is fine; learning is taking place, and our girls are safe.
Mmbone has additionally asked parents to get confirmed information from the school and stay away from rumors on social media.
11 students are in hospitals
According to accounts, 11 students fell ill on Saturday, May 13, with 2 exhibiting symptoms similar to malaria and 9 expressing abdominal pain.
These students were all taken urgently to the hospital for medical care.
The principal said that three of them had been let go since the medication was working effectively on the others.
“Parents shouldn’t freak out, and anyone in need of information should come to school where I can provide accurate information. However, everything is well, Mmbone said.
The school now has a medical professional on staff who is responsible for the students’ safety, according to the principal.
She claimed that precautions have been taken to make sure that the school doesn’t descend into chaos like it did previously.
The school was shut down indefinitely on April 3rd as a result of an outbreak that claimed the lives of pupils and a teacher.
After a diagnosis, the outbreak was later connected to tainted food and water.
Under the direction of Education CS Ezekiel Machogu, the school was fumigated and all essential actions were done to stop the spread.
The school year started once again on May 8, 2023. Before classes resumed in Mombasa, all of the food items in the store, worth sh6.4 million, were destroyed.
Sister Mmbone assuaged worries about a second outbreak in the school but asked parents and the public to rest assured that everything was well and that classes were continuing in session.
She invited anyone in need of trustworthy information to come to the school to get it straight from the source.
