Chaos erupted Sunday during the election of new officials of Kenya Secondary School Head Teachers Association (KESSHA) after delegates from Central region demanded regional balance.
The delegates from Central surged towards the dais as they demanded stoppage of elections, causing a 20-minute ruckus at the Wild Waters in Mombasa where the high school principals are attending their annual conference.
The delegates accused the election officials, including KESSHA Chairman Indimuli Kahi, of discriminating against them and seeking to lock out their preferred candidate.
“We know there is a scheme to lock out a candidate from Central and replace him with someone from Rift Valley. We will not allow this discriminative act to continue,” said Mr Kamau Kamatu, who is the principal of Thigio Boys High School.
