Ahadi Kenya CEO calls for installation of CCTV cameras in schools
Ahadi Kenya Chief Executive Officer Stanley Kamau has called for installation of CCTV cameras in all secondary schools to curb the rising cases or arson and unrest in such institutions.
Kamau says CCTV cameras will capture footage from the dormitories and classes, thus making it easier to monitor student behavior. Such surveillance would help institutions to act preemptively, and footage can also be used to identify students involved in arson attacks.
He also called for the setting of dispute resolution committees in schools, saying doing so would allow students to table their grievances constructively.
Kamau blamed leaders for being bad role models to the students, adding that conducting violent protests over political disputes teaches young people to resort to violence when they have disagreements.
“We should reconsider our dispute resolution measures; when we do, students will also reconsider how they solve their issues,” Kamau said.
The CEO went call for the reintroduction of corporal punishment, saying it could tame rogue students.
“We should bring back corporal punishment in schools and students joining high school should also have a certificate of good conduct” he said.
Kamau was speaking in Mwaroni Primary School in Kwale County during the anti- jigger campaign where over 500 pupils from three primary schools were treated.
Over 5000 shoes and slippers and sanitary pads were also donated to the pupils in the campaigns that were in partnership with Lotto Foundation.
