A man is buried inside a school in Baringo County – but it is not Kabarnet High School

When everyone was gone to sleep on Friday Night, some unknown people buried a dead person inside the school compound of a school in North Baringo, Baringo County.

The man was said to be in conflict with the school for allegedly grabbing his land and constructing the school without involving his family.

Koroto Secondary School, which currently has 30 students in form 1, was built within a piece of land that was allocated to Koroto Primary School several years ago. However, one family became exuberantly opposed to the school construction because they believed the land where it was located belonged to them by ancestral inheritance.

When the school committee was constituted with haste last year, no stakeholder engagement or genuine community sensitization was carried out. The Committee planned for a harambee to raise funds for the school.

As plans were underway, a family member of the deceased built a house inside the proposed school compound. The deceased went to court to sue the school and stop the construction. Nevertheless, the interim school committee went ahead to demolish the “illegal” house and build the school.

The retired police officer fell sick soon after and was admitted to Nakuru PGH, where he lost his life. He was then buried in the middle of the night at the place where the house was demolished.

It is alleged that the deceased had requested to be buried there if and when he dies.

It is not clear what caused the man’s death, but considering the events prior to the unfortunate demise, we could only but guess correctly.
