Kakamega Teachers Had Reserved One Staircase for Themselves
Sixteen teachers from Kakamega Primary School have so far recorded statements with police as investigations into the stampede that killed 15 pupils a week ago continue.
Western region Criminal Investigations Officer Shem Nyamboki said detectives were planning to record statements from pupils and other witnesses.
According to Mr Nyamboki, preliminary investigations indicate that teachers at the school had restricted pupils to using only one of the two staircases in the building and reserved the other for themselves.
Three pupils out of the 15 who died in the stampede will be buried on Saturday.
Those to be buried are Catherine Aloo from Butere, Lavenda Akasa from Ikonyero and Bertha Munywele from Esumiya in Lurambi constituency.
