On Monday, July 27, teachers employed at the Sichekhe Primary School in Namboboto, Busia county, were treated to a rude shock after being locked out for coming late.
As reported by NTV, the teachers found the gate locked, and those desperate not to skip their lessons were forced to sneak into the school through a barbed wire.
The institution’s headteacher, George Bwire, argued that it would be hard for teachers to plan for their lessons if they came to school late.
He insisted that keeping time was a lesson that everyone ought to learn.
“If teachers can come to school at 8.20 am and that’s the time lessons start, how will they prepare themselves to start teaching?” posed Bwire.
Seemingly unhappy with the turned tables, one of the affected teachers said they had been turned into a laughing stock as pupils thought the headteacher would cane them for late coming.
