A form two student at Mokwerero Secondary School in Nyamira county has been arrested for threatening to slash the deputy principal – Jared Morara.
The student was armed with a panga and a sharpening file.
County commissioner Amos Mariba said officers are yet to establish why the student wanted to slash the deputy principal and how he got into the school with the weapon.
He said the school principal – Kennedy Ogecha – called the assistant chief when the altercation happened and Morara was rescued.
“We are investigating the matter, ” said Mariba.
He urged school heads to ensure they thoroughly frisk students as they report back to school.
The incident comes a day after a student is alleged to have stabbed two teachers at Kisii School.
