Students in Secondary Schools in Kenya who peform below expectation are been advsierd to withdraw.

The first casualty are thirty-four girls of Nasokol Secondary School in West Pokot .

The girls, mostly footballers were sent home by their principal due to their poor performance.

The students, who are between Forms one and three,were camped at Kitale Showground and spent the night  under unfavourable climate conditions, were sent out of ther school by the new principal who decided to scrap the policies of her predecessor.

Her predecesor  encouraged those who excelled in sports by introducing waivers in  school fees payment and academic performance.

 A parent of one of the affected students, Mr Saulo Tukoi, condemned the new development saying ,“We tried to reach a deal with the principal over modalities of starting to pay school fees but she was adamant, saying we are free to take our children elsewhere,”
