A cow was on Sunday afternoon rescued after she fell and  stuck in a more than 20 feets pit latrine at the Manyani PEFA Church in Kivumbini Ward.

The cow belonging to one of the locals fell in the uncovered pit latrine while grazing in the church compound.

Efforts by locals to rescue the cow were fruitless leading a call on Fire and Rescue Service from the county government of Nakuru.

Arrival of Rescue Team who collaborated with locals gave hope.

A length of rope were attached to the cow before she was hauled out of the pit in a mission that took one hour.

The officers from the Fire and Rescue urged the pastor of the church to ensure the pit latrine is covered to avert similar incidents.

“We do such services free of charge but we call on the pastor of this church to cover this latrine to avert such” said one of the officers.

A section of religious leaders have weighed in on the ongoing cases of unrest in schools, calling for stern measures to address the same.

Addressing journalists at Bondeni AIC during a charity event, the clergy argued that the unrest in schools calls for concerted effort among stakeholders to address the same.

Led by Rev.Gilbert Olang’, said failure by society to adhere to the virtues in life has also contributed to the same.

According to the clergy, it is high time that the corporal punishment that was abolished should be re-introduced.

They noted that those who went through the times of corporal punishment in schools are different in life as compared to the current generation where children are living in a free world.

“We have lost the value of humanity. The society is kind of not strong hence then children are not having good pillars to stand on. I think we should go back to the virtues and also think of re-introducing the corporal punishment.” said Rev Olang’.

Sentiments echoed by Mr.Alex Njoroge-a parent and Chairman Malaika Initiative Project at Bondeni AIC that takes care of vulnerable children.

Njoroge noted that there is something wrong with parenting in the community and society at large.

He called on parents to up their parenthood responsibility and ensure they help them psychologically and mentally and avert domestic conflicts which might be replicated to the children while in school.

“As parents we have a responsibility to ensure we offer guidance to children. We should also avert conflicts at home as this might be copied by children who turn violent in schools” said Njoroge.

Cases of unrest in schools have been on the rise in various parts of the country with several schools being torched.

The latest incidents in that of Kakamega High school where two dormitories were set burnt down by fire with already 16 students arrested over the same.

Other schools which have experienced fires in the last few weeks are Buruburu Girls, Chavakali Boys in Vihiga County and Kanjuri High School in Nyeri.

The Ministry of Education has bowed to pressure and allowed schools to go for mid-term from 19th to 23rd of November even though this second term had no such plans for mid-term.
