Another secondary school has been rocked by protests over dismal performance in last year’s Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education.

Masimba High School in Masaba South sub county, Kisii, was temporarily closed by irate parents and the local community on Monday January 30. It obtained a mean score of 2.10 in the 2022 KCSE. 

Parents blamed the poor performance on the school's principal Joel Nyabuti. He was absent at the institution during the protests.  

This comes as some education stakeholders continue to storm schools which posted poor exam results to harass and intimidate principals even when they were solely not responsible for the performance.

One of the parents, Mama Beatrice, said it was not only the school's Mean Grade that points to the sorry state of affairs but the facilities too. She said the school dropped has no adequate water and electricity supply. 

This poor performance and learning infrastructure have seen enrolment reduce from about 1,000 per year to only 300, lamented another parent Cliff Ongeri.  

The parents said they have written numerous letters to the Education Ministry but their grievances are yet to be addressed.
