Police officers and parents stormed Eton Academy in Tudor Mombasa on Tuesday to rescue pupils who had been locked inside the school over rent arrears.

The landlord of the facility is said to have locked the school’s main gate due to non-payment of January rent amounting to Sh150,000, leaving the pupils locked inside for days.

According to the parents, the landlord padlocked the gate of the day and boarding primary school on Friday.

‘ENOUGH FOOD’

“He came on Friday locked us in and left. Luckily the boarding section had enough food supply. I owe him January rent. I decided to stay with the children,” the head teacher Ms Mshenga Kisasa told Nation.

The school has been operational for over 10 years with a population of over 200 pupils. Only 45 are boarders.

“We have always had problems with the landlord. He keeps harassing us especially whenever we fail to pay rent by 10th of every month, he usually storms the school with a padlock threatening to close down the school. I have tried talking to him but my efforts have failed,” Ms Kisasa said.

On Saturday, Ms Kisasa said she reported the matter to Makupa police station.

“We cannot be slaves in this house, we are here for the sake of these children. We have our Sh260,000 deposit,” Ms Kisasa added.

The rescued pupils shed tears of joy after the school’s entrance was re-opened by armed police.

A parent, Mrs Mariam Lwande urged police to take action against the landlord.

‘MANAGED TO ESCAPE’

“The landlord came and just shut down the school while boarders were inside. But some children managed to escape. Money is not everything we must learn to protect minors,,” Ms Lwande said.

“Our children will resume school tomorrow (Tuesday). A debt should not make someone inhumane locking up innocent children, this is very unfair,” Ms Lwande said.

Neighbors in Tudor said they saw children climbing the gate while trying to escape after the landlord padlocked the main entry.

“We are not pleased by the way the landlord of this facility has behaved, these are human beings. The landlord must parent much as he claims his rent, this is a bad trend. The landlord could have demanded for his rent during the December holidays and not locking the children we want to know why the man came to close the school more especially when the learners were in,” Mombasa Urban OCPD Eliud Monari said.

The OCPD said investigations have commenced.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
