AS schools opened for the second term this week, pupils from Kiambogo Primary School in Gatuanyaga, Thika Eat district have to bear difficulty as the school has become a place of refuge for their parents displaced by floods. The flood victims are putting up in the school's classrooms.
Addressing the press in Thika town, Thika East DC Mohamed Dala described the situation as pathetic. He said the Red Cross Society has been approached to provide tents for the victims to allow learning at the school to continue.
Dala said a site where the victims will be temporality settled has been identified on a piece of land adjacent to the expansive Delmonte Pineapple farm. He appealed to well-wishers to come to the aid of the victims who lost almost everything in the floods.
