Police in Nyandarua County are holding a Form Three student arrested for attacking a teacher.
Samuel Migwi of Murichu Secondary School was nabbed on Monday after he rained blows and kicks on Mr John Gikonyo, the teacher on duty, for punishing him.
Gikonyo reportedly landed in trouble after he reprimanded Migwi for jumping the queue when they were being served lunch.
He was rescued by his colleagues who called the police.
According to Nyandarua North sub-county police boss Timon Odingo, the school administration alerted the police who rushed to the scene and effected the arrest.
“The student had been punished for his action before he assaulted the teacher. He was rescued by his colleagues,” he said.
Odingo said the 20-year-old student has since been locked up at Ndaragwa Police Station awaiting to be arraigned in court.
“We will charge him with assault. We will not allow this trend to continue” he said.
