The affected is said to low and was constructed with a beam making it prune to heavy winds, according to a reports in the cause of the disaster.

However, the district authorities have since failed to raise Shillings 20M required to fix the problem.

According to Odongo, many pupils are likely to shun school should the situation persist. He calls on government, Non-governmental organizations and well-wishers to come to their rescue.
