Primary school head teachers have been warned not to fall prey to ‘Slayqueens’ during their week-long annual conference in Mombasa.
More than 10,000 school heads arrived in Mombasa on Sunday ahead of the 14th Kenya Primary School Heads Association(Kepsha) Conference at Sheikh Zayed Centre in Nyali constituency, which kicked off yesterday.
One of the agendas for the teachers is the planned September 1 nationwide strike called by the Kenya National Union of Teachers. Addressing the media on Sunday, Kepsha officials said that they oppose the strike and they will not jump onto the bandwagon without a clear explanation.
On a much lighter note, Kepsha officials also took the time to warn headteachers against the dangers that lie ahead of them in the notorious Coastal city.
Kisauni Deputy County Commissioner Kipchumba Rutto told the teachers to be on the lookout for ‘slay queens’ who may be looking to looking to squander their hard-earned cash.
“Teachers should move in groups for their safety. They must be wary of ‘slay queens’ who might drug them and rob their money,” he said.
Rutto’s sentiments were echoed by Kepsha Secretary General David Mavuta on Monday who said that they are treating Mombasa ‘slayqueens’ as predators.
Speaking with a KTN reporter, the official noted that headteachers make for easy prey and advised them to move in groups. He also warned the teachers to be wary of ”Mambo ya mchele”, in reference to the rampant drink spiking, saying it can turn out to be disastrous.
