Kisumu Girls High School students enthusiastically celebrated the arrival of their new principal, Eve Akeyo Odhiambo.
In a viral video seen by Kenyadailypress, the students joyfully sang the popular “Mali Safi Chito” hit at the top of their lungs as Ms. Eve made her way towards the assembly.
Upon reaching the students, Ms. Eva gracefully danced and surprised everyone with an unexpected move at the center of the gathering.
The overjoyed students, who were unable to contain their joy, enthusiastically pushed each other to get a touch of their new head, almost lifting her up.
This exuberant display resulted in some students happily falling as they reveled in the overwhelming joy.
Our media team learned that Ms. Eve, formerly the principal of Sironga Girls in Nyamira County, is taking over from Margaret Mechumo.
Margaret Mechumo, assumes the role of the new principal at Chwele Girls High School in Bungoma, while Jane Nyanumba will take over as the new school boss of Sironga Girls.
Sironga Girls demonstrated significant improvement, attaining a commendable mean score of 8.01 in the 2023 KCSE results.
The remarkable achievement propelled 461 students from the institution directly into universities, as they achieved a grade of C+ and above.
In September 2023, Kisumu Girls Students became unruly, citing issues such as corporal punishment and alleged infringement of their right to worship and entertainment, leading to the indefinite closure of the institution.
This situation was reminiscent of a similar event in 2020, prompting administrative action.
