Gremon Education Centre in Mombasa has been closed after a pupil was assaulted by the school head.

The Standard 7 pupil is said to have picked extra chapatis during dinner on January 23, 2022, leading to a beating by the director of the school, Nancy Gachewa.

The learner’s mother, Agnes Mwangi claimed he was scalded with hot water and beaten with water pipes leaving him with grave injuries.

“Madam akaniambia hii ni kesi kidogo, nikamwambia ni sawa, nikiangalia kile kinasemekana ni kitu kidogo…mtoto wangu kusimama hawezi, mpaka ashikiliwe, ukimwangalia mgongo anakaa amechomwa…ako na alama kila mahali ya vidonda,” Ms Mwangi said.

She also alleged that Gachewa who has since been arrested also instructed other pupils to beat her son.

“Yaani huyo kijana alimpiga akapumzika akamwambia tukutane tena baadaye, na walipompiga hawakunijulisha mimi kama mzazi, director alisema nisijulishwe kabisa. Hakuna kitu inaumiza kama nikuleetee mtoto akiwa mzima alafu unirejeshee akiwa kiwete,” the distraught parent told reporters.

The child who is admitted at the Coast General is currently on dialysis after the beating injured his kidney. His nether regions were also damaged, intimated his mother.

“Sijui kama atarudi mtoto, maana figo yake moja imeathirika..sahii imesemekana ataanzishiwa dialysis, ilhali mimi nilipeleka mtoto shuleni akiwa mzima,” she added.
