Sacred Heart Mukumu Girls High School Principal Jane Mmbone has revealed that all the 88 students who were admitted at St Elizabeth Mukumu Mission after complaining of stomach ache have been discharged and are back to class.
Mmbone termed the illness as one of the teething problems facing the institution but stressed that the management had embarked on many reforms geared towards ensuring the safety of learners.
She said the new Board of Management, comprising of seasoned educationists, would ensure she school regained its status as one of the leading schools in the country.
She urged the Lake Victoria Water Works Development Agency to ensure that the Ksh6 Million borehole sunk at the school by the government becomes operational to boost the supply of clean water to the students.
“Our girls need access to sufficient clean water hence the borehole will be of great help when it is operational,” she said.
The new board, chaired by Fr. Vincent Mukokho who is deputized by retired TSC Deputy Director Diosiana Ahindukha, has been holding regular meetings at the school to ensure the return of normalcy.
Other board members include former principals Oliver Minishi, Rose Wanaswa, Patrick Nzaywa, Dr. Polycarp Ishenyi, retired teacher and trade unionist Fred Anguba, Beatrice Memo, Kenneth Muhanji, Jason Mulama, Bibiana Mululu, Gabriel Fwaya, Genevieve Imbayi and Cheryl Masai.
The former board was sent packing on April 15 following an outbreak of a mysterious ailment that claimed the lives of a teacher and three students.
