- Belio said more day schools will give parent time to interact with their children

- At least 47 students have been arrested in connection to school fires

- Government closed down 26 schools in Nyanza following spate of students unrest

The relationship between parents and school-going children featured prominently when the Education Principal Secretary (PS) Belio Kipsang appeared before a parliamentary committee on Thursday, July 12.

Belio told the National Assembly Committee on Education the government was intending to increase the number of day schools so that parents and guardians can spend more time with their children.

The PS lamented parents had left their roles in the hands of teachers.

He reiterated his office would not allow rogue students to dictate on how to run learning institutions adding transfer of teachers remain.

Belio was summoned over increasing wave of students unrest in Western part of Kenya.

So far, the police have arrested at least 47 students in connection to attempted and actual burning and destruction of school property.

Eight students from Kisii High school who allegedly captured in CCTV cameras leaving a dormitory prior to a fire incident, are currently being held at the police custody.

Kisii High School arson attack is just one among the many cases of students unrest under two weeks.

The government ordered closure of 26 secondary schools in Nyanza following spate of violence reported, leaving about 4, 210 students out of classes.
