Precious Talent School pupils were a no show at Ngong Forest Primary School, the school to which the government reassigned 480 of them.

Only 8 pupils showed up on Monday morning.

The transfer happened after a classroom at their school collapsed killing 8 and leaving 64 others with soft tissue injuries.

Education CS George Magoha then formed a task force to look into the safety of the school. Days later, the school’s operating license was then revoked.

“The high enrollment and lack of safe physical facilities with non-compliance of qualified teaching staff, sanitation facilities thus render the registration facility null and void,” Magoha said on Thursday.

Over the weekend, the Ministry of Education supplied desks, text books and transferred six teachers to Ngong Forest Primary School.
