Many Kenyans were this morning alarmed after images emerged of young kids blocking the busy Mbagathi Road with their desks.
It is said that the pupils of Kenyatta Golf Course Academy were protesting the demolition of their school. The reasons behind the demolition are not clear.
However it is the image of very young kids aged anywhere between 5-7 years standing infront of cars that chilled many.
Although the kids were accompanied by their teachers, many Kenyans were not convinced about the safety of the kids on such a busy road.
Whoever came up with this idea should be taught a good lesson by law enforcers. This is bad — Edwin Ctu (@edwinctu1) May 15, 2017
The teachers in that school should be arrested immediately. Those kids can be hurt there. — Oscar Muriithi Njage (@oscarnjage) May 15, 2017
Exposing children to suffering by both sides is not good. What are the issues behind this? — Majani Chasia (@ChasiaMJ) May 15, 2017
Were the parents consulted in this???there is a better way to get heard that doesn't involve risking innocent kids' lives. — moha's megg (@meggrop26) May 15, 2017
The teachers here have gone the wrong way in addressing this issue, do not risk the lives of these kids, they should be charged — Paul Ndinya (@pndinya) May 15, 2017
Imagine a random rogue motorist or a robber on the run comes across this? — nde+a™ ???? (@ndeta_m) May 15, 2017
