MZUZU-MaraviPost)-Students at Euthini Secondary School in Mzimba have last night burnt to ashes the kitchen of the institution.
According to the head teacher of the school, Isaac Daka, the incident took place in the wee hours of Tuesday, December 6, 2022.
“I just joined the school last Saturday, but I found a sour relationship between students and management. Students here lack discipline and they kept petrol in their hostels for some days before the incident ,” said Daka.
He added that so far the school in liaison with Northern Education Division (NED) management, has suspended four Form 4 and six Form 3 students who were deemed to be the ring leaders of the arson.
The head teacher further disclosed that electrical appliances and some plumbing materials worth MK7 million have been damaged by the fire.
In July this year, students at St. John Bosco Secondary School in the district also petrol bombed the staff room of the institution and stoned the library and two laboratories of the school.
