Ian Mwaura Njenga, a student of Bahati Boys High School was expelled from the school on February 13 after he was accused of drawing “suggestive art”.
“He has drawings which are suggestive that he is owing allegiance to some faith. We have so many things within the school that Ian could have drawn inspiration from like cows or even portraits of other students. But drawing suggestive things like snakes and scorpions is not condoned in this school,” reads part of the expulsion letter signed by the school principal Patrick Ombok.
Nakuru County Director for Education Isaac Asebe has stepped in and ordered the school management to rescind its punitive decision and allow the student proceed with his studies.
“I have talked with the school and they will be re-admitting the boy to school on Monday. The school further suggested that the boy will be given guidance and counselling sessions,”
