A student in Kiambu County, Kenya was suspended from school and ordered to buy 1000 loaves of bread as punishment for allegedly stealing a loaf of bread.
The Form 3 student at Muhoho High School in Gatundu South was sent home on Thursday, February February 15 after supposedly stealing the bread from the school dining hall.
In the suspension letter obtained by Citizen Digital, the student was required to return to school with 1000 loaves, which, according to the school, is bread enough to feed all the students in the school.
In addition to buying bread for the whole school, the deputy principal ordered the student to clear all his pending school fees balance.
“You are required to return to school the soonest possible at 9am having cleared all the school levies and come with bread for all the students in the school i.e. 1000 loaves,” read part of the letter signed and stamped by the deputy principal.
With bread retailing at an average of Ksh.50, this means the student’s parent or guardian is set to part with approximately Ksh.50,000.
