A primary school teacher from Ndooni Primary School Kitui County was on January 7th burnt to death by an angry mob of parents. The action was prompted by poor performance posted by students in the 2019 KCPE results.
Daisy Mbaithe Mbaluka was attacked by the parents under unfortunate circumstances that led to her cruel murder.
Credible sources revealed that the angry parents invaded the school and evicted the teacher. They later ambushed her while she was on the way taking her children to school and killing her before setting her body on fire.
Kitui county director of education Salesa Adano condemned the action taken against the teacher terming the act as barbaric.
He further confirmed that the parents waylaid the teacher as she headed home from school, slashed her with pangas to death before setting her body on fire.
“This is a barbaric criminal incident. The security officers have moved there to establish what exactly happened. But we will follow up the matter to ensure justice is served for the teacher who was killed in cold blood,” reiterated Salea.
Information going around in Malali area is that the irate parents accused Diana of possessing witchcraft she used to torment children at Ndooni primary where she worked.
