Pupils at Wabere Primary School in Isiolo will have to sit for their term exams inside a nearby church after their classrooms were razed by strong winds.

According to the headteacher Mr. Joshua Naituli, this is the second time the incident has occurred due to the ongoing heavy rains that the country is experiencing.

Mr. Naituli said the classrooms were built as a temporary shelter and could have not withstood harsh climatic conditions.

Fortunately, there were no pupils inside the classrooms during the incident as they were taking part in game competitions at a different school, he added.

The headteacher has urged both the county and national governments to help the school build stronger structures so that learning at the AIPC church does not become a permanent situation.
