The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji, accompanied by DCI boss, George Kinoti, visited Precious Talents School on Thursday, where eight pupils died and 64 others were injured following a Monday morning tragedy.

The visit transpired moments after Education CS George Magoha shut down the school due to safety concerns.

Official statements from both directors on their official Twitter accounts said they had visited the scene for, ” fact-finding and prosecution guided investigations.”

Earlier on, CS Magoha said the findings of a task force established to compile a report on the tragedy at Precious Talents School was to be handed to the DCI for further investigation and possible prosecution.

Through the findings, it led to the arrest of the owner of the school, Moses Wainana, on Thursday, who is set to be arraigned in court on Friday.

Magoha said the school was registered to admit only 340 learners but violated these guidelines. At the time of the collapse, the school had 800 learners.

“The high enrollment and lack of safe physical facilities… did not warrant the existence of the school,” he stated while shutting down the school on Thursday.

Wainaina had, on Tuesday this week, blamed the Nairobi County government for the incident stating that the county administration dug a sewer line behind the classrooms which weakened the classroom’s foundation.

He acknowledged that it was a good intention from the county government to contain sewerage but unfortunately an accident happened as a result of their efforts.

“They had good intentions to help this school but an accident has happened,” he stated.
