A headmaster in Sironoi, Nandi County, is in hot water after he was allegedly caught manufacturing a class 8 pupil.
The headmaster, who has not been named, is said to have used a fake birth certificate to enroll the pupil in his school.
The headmaster’s alleged scheme was uncovered after the pupil’s parents became suspicious of his age. The parents had noticed that the pupil was much taller and more developed than other children his age.
They also noticed that he had a different surname than them.
The parents confronted the headmaster, who admitted to manufacturing the pupil. He told them that he had done so because he needed to boost the enrollment figures at his school.
The headmaster has been arrested and is facing charges of fraud and forgery. He is also being investigated by the Ministry of Education.
This is a shocking case of a headmaster who has allegedly put his own interests ahead of the welfare of his pupils.
It is also a reminder of the importance of ensuring that schools have robust systems in place to prevent fraud and forgery.
The headmaster’s alleged actions have also raised questions about the quality of education that is being provided at his school.
If he was willing to falsify documents in order to boost enrollment figures, it is possible that he is also cutting corners in other areas.
This case is a reminder that parents need to be vigilant about the education that their children are receiving.
They should ask questions about the school’s enrollment procedures and make sure that their children are being taught by qualified teachers.
If you have any concerns about the education that your child is receiving, you should contact the school’s principal or the Ministry of Education.
