The Anglican Church sponsored Maseno School for the Deaf school is presently in a severe deplorable state and if checks and balances are not put in place then the multi0million institution might go to the dogs.
This is as a result of ineptness, negligence and total lack of concern and care for the once prestigious institution which are attracted students and pupils from the entire East Africa Community.
The Principal of the Institution is said to lack basic communication and managerial skills as well lack of respect for the employees who have all a long been behind the success of the said institution.
Efforts by the Ministry of Medical Services through their Public Health division to streamline systems within the institution has been met with a lot of corruption as the Principal is said to have pocketed all his critics.
The school infrastructure is in a very deplorable state as the main sewer within the institution has busted dropping all the wastes to the students dormitories and the deaf and blind children who can’t talk as well as see nor hear live in such a pathetic state and at times they drop food on the floor flowing with human faces and pick and eat the same.
The staff have no protective clothing and are forced to clean the sewer discharges with their bare hands, the institutions kitchen has no firewood throughout and the staff are forced to fell trees and use it in its green state which makes the children only to have only one meal in a day yet the parents and the government which are also donors within the institution are not informed notwithstanding the tendering of the same annually.
The said deaf and blind children are forced to cross over the ever busy Siriba road to fetch water from the stream a kilometer away.
On learning these the staff held a meeting after the pathetic situation had resulted into the children going on strike and presented the Principal with a proposed both long and short time for the immediate curbing of the school’s situation.
Rather than acting on the emergency stop gap measure on the situation, the Principal opted to randomly threaten those whom he perceived were behind the said document.
The teachers are presently demoralized and it’s a matter of time they down their tools demanding the removal of the current the Principal who is said to be related to a leading clergy of the church which sponsors the institution.
Besides sealing the vices through money obtained from the institutions coffers which he uses to dish to everybody who attempts to question his misconduct.
The Kisumu County education Office has so far been petitioned to reign in and restore sanity within the institution.
Contacted for comment the school’s Principal a Mr.Ngwaara told this writer that he should direct those questions to Bishop Mwai Abiero whom he says is well positioned to comment on such saying he is mere a figure head and all procurement issues is handled by the Bishop’s office.
“The car which was meant for the school is also being used by the Bishop’s son who is, please talk to him he will answer all your queries, even me I know the institution is in a pathetic state, but what do I do” he added
