Bungoma high secondary school Ksh 3M gate has elicited mixed reaction among Kenyans online.
The ultramodern facility boasts huge metallic gates. One of its outstanding features is a special cell where errant students will be detained before being taken to police station. In addition, it also has spacious offices for the guards and washrooms for the visitors.
A section of Kenyans have expressed their dissatisfaction with the project terming it as waste of resources. The school principal Mr Enock Andaje has however defended the facility. According to Andaje, the gate will help most security and curb drug abuse.
“No visitor will be allowed to the school without going through all the protocols at the gate as it will help minimize theft and drug supply in the school,” the principal noted.
The words of the principal were echoed by Western region director of Education Stephen Barongo who graced the official launch of the gate.
“I am very impressed with the move by the Principal of this school Mr Enock Andanje for coming up with such a fantastic initiative of ensuring that the school gets a modern gate. Out of the many schools I have visited, Bungoma high school gate is one of the best,” he said.
