The government spokesperson Colonel Cyrus Oguna said the government will take care of the medical bills for the 57 pupils who are currently undergoing treatment after the collapse of a classroom.
This follows an unfortunate incident where a classroom at Precious Talent School along Ngong Road in Nairobi County caved in at around 6.50am, killing 7 pupils.
The pupils aged between eight to 15 years met their sudden death in the early morning of the September 23, when they were undertaking their usual morning preps
“57 students have been taken to hospital for treatment and we can also confirm that there have been seven fatalities. This is a private school but the government is going to ensure the injured pupils receive medical treatment,” said Oguna.
They are currently undergoing medication at the Kenyatta National and Referral Hospital.
However, the school managers could not estimate the number of pupils who were in class when the building came tumbling down.
Some parents and school neighbours said they had raised concerns over the safety and stability of the building.
Education Cabinet Secretary is scheduled to give a presser on the similar incident, but the government’s spokesperson urged the public to maintain calm as they move with speed to help the affected.
