A 13 year old boy is nursing serious injuries after he was punished by his teacher for writing a love letter to a girl in his school.
The boy is a standard seven pupil at Joymax Academy, a boarding school located at Huruma Estate which is within Eldoret town.
He sustained injuries on the neck, buttocks and back. The teacher reportedly used a wire to administer punishment to the pupil.
After the punishment, the boy who could not handle the pain reported the matter to the headteacher, who organised for a private nurse to treat the boy in an attempt to address the matter silently.
The boys parents want the Ministry of Education to take action against the teacher and the school, despite the teacher’s apology.
