Nyali Board of management calls for Grade 6 meeting to approve construction despite Court Order stopping the construction

Despite the exit of Nyali Most Corrupt Headteacher Mr. John Kombo (aka JK), scandals are far from over with the evil spirit of JK still haunting Nyali School. JK himself has already settled in his School (Paramount Education Centre) but has been a host of the Nyali Executive Board members that includes the Chairman, Treasurer, an Iron Lady (Ms. Damaris Karanja – A relative to the Chairperson of the Board and a parent) and a board member (an employee of one of the Trustees) bestowed with project of the Junior High School. Their daily meetings are done to ensure that the project is done despite a court order to stop AGM that included the construction of the Junior High School. The executive want the project to be undertaken before leaving the office so that they may get their Kickbacks which amounts to Millions of shillings. The project is estimated to be 37 Million but was broken down to two phases to allow the executive approve the Phase I which is slightly below 20 Million mark that the mutilated club constitution allows. The Iron lady has been incorporated after she was promised a tender to supply sand and blocks at an inflated price. Her role is to mobilize parents of Grade 6 approve the project. JK whose contract was terminated last month will be recalled using the “on call” clause to supervise the entire process of construction. Mzee knows that if he is not involved, his former colleagues will eat all the money alone.    

To propagate their agenda – the executive board members urgently called for a meeting on 4th June, 2022 of Grade 6 parents in a bid to seduce them to approve the construction. A letter signed by JK on 31st May, 2022 (his last day in office) was issued to the Grade 6 teachers to give to the Grade 6 kids. However, the Grade 6 teachers declined to give the kids the letter terming it suicidal as it would have meant that JK was still to attend the meeting. The teachers had seen the worst of JK and would not have liked to see him again. This letter brought a lot of anger by JK who could not believe that the teachers will even before leaving the Nyali premises refused to follow his instructions. But the truth was, JK was no longer relevant to them and they care-less.  

Parents learnt about this mischief on 2nd June, 2022 after the letter was leaked. The Iron lady who was tasked with the role of convincing Grade 6 parents to attend the meeting, all of a sudden became very vocal supporting the meeting in parents WhatsApp groups. She even wrote a very disturbing WhatsApp message in the parents Grade 6 wall after the Grade 6 parents refused to attend the meeting. This brought uproar in parents WhatsApp group with many parents questioning why JK was undermining the acting Principal and rendering him unable to undertake his task even before he left the school. The Acting Principal who has been a teacher and a loyal deputy to JK in the last two decades was seen by many parents as a good choice to spearhead the transition and ensuring stability and Discipline is improved in school. However, JK and the executive who eye the millions in the Junior High School construction did not want the Ag. Principal to interfere much with the construction. Wanaume wanataka kula hio pesa yote pekee yao. After all the uproar, one of the parents WhatsApp group was disbanded by the executive after they saw it as a threat to their agenda.  

Parents exposed all the mischiefs of the meeting including the main aim of wanting the parents Grade 6 to approve the construction in what many parents terming it as back-door approval.  Even though the letter was indicating the discussion to focus on academics, inner sources, tells us that it the construction of the Junior High School was to dominate the meeting.

However, when the executive saw that parents have started to question the meeting, it was immediately postponed till further notice. However, hardly an hour another circular was released inviting Grade 6 parents to the same meeting but now on 11th June, 2022.

Additionally, a friend from KICD was invited to further convince the parents that the Junior High School construction must be undertaken. Mr. PATRICK CHIRISWA ANDIKA (Assistant Director- Business Development (Consultancy, resource mobilization and partnership) is believed to have been invited to spearhead the executive board agenda and also promised to be given a cut of the lion’s share. Mr. Andika (a very close of JK) has already been issued with an Air ticket to fly to Mombasa and is also believed to be among the people JK want to succeed him in Nyali School. It is believed that he will lead a team from KICD to brainwash the Grade 6 parents approve the construction. But parents have already launched a complaint against Mr. Andika and his team to both KICD and Ombudsman requesting both institutions to stop Mr. Andika from interfering with Nyali internal matters.

Further, the construction of the Nyali Junior High School cannot proceed as long as the matter before magistrate on AGM (that included the Junior High School construction) has not been determined. The Club Secretary (a renowned lawyer) advised the board but it seems their daily meeting at Paramount has decided not to listen to his legal advisor.

As it stands, all parents with kids from Grade one to Grade six have promised to attend the meeting and any discussion on the junior would most likely going to spark huge debate and confrontation. For sure, this is not an academic meeting but a meeting to short-change parents to approve the construction of the Junior High School. The parent who rushed to court has also promised to go back to court to seek a contempt and arrest of the executive board members if discussions on Junior High School will take place.

The project manager (a board member who also is an employee of one of the trustees) has gotten all the approvals required with the design part only costing the school over 0.5 Million. Definitely JK and the project manager got their kickbacks. It is also believed that, he is also the person who negotiates the kickbacks on behalf of the Board from the contractors. The man is so passionate and has set aside all his activities to concentrate on the Junior High School construction.

The executive board has already hinted that after the meeting and if gotten approval by Grade 6, a ground breaking will follow on Sunday. The contractor has already been given a go-ahead to prepare to move his equipment by Sunday. JK has now decided to continue demolishing Nyali while siphoning money from it. Many parents wonder also, how only a section of Grade 6 parents would approve the projects. Many believe that JK and the executive have run out of ideas and are now making very stupid attempts.

JK is also expected to attend the Grade 6 meeting but parents on their side are preparing to confront him at any cost. Mzee still wants to eat even after quitting the school. As it stands Nyali School issues are still far from over.

Parents pray that the evil spirit of JK vanishes and that a new sober Committee is quickly formed to revive and protect Nyali School from fall.
