"The story circulating in social media is totally false. The lady showed kneeling and getting emotional sought for a form one transfer to Wasabwa in Siaya county. The details of her relative who requested her transfer are available in Nemis. The school has no mandate to retransfer the student
The parent came to school accompanied by Media guys and despite being advised by the School Principal to be patient as she contacted the ministry she went ahead to create drama," read the statement from the institution.
