Kenyans on social media have applauded a school teacher who was caught on camera whipping students by the roadside.

The clip shows the teacher caning two male students next to their school bus as members of the public watch.

However, from the clip, which has since gone viral, its neither clear from which school the student are nor the mistake they committed to warrant the corporal punishment.

While most Kenyans on Twitter seemed to support the teacher’s punitive action, the Director of Criminal Investigations has requested the user who posted the video to provide more information on the incident.
