A Form 3 student at Kisii High School stabbed two teachers on Tuesday morning.
One teacher, Edwin Mokaya, had sought to understand why the student had come late to class. Mokaya took him to the staffroom and asked him to kneel.
It is there that the student reportedly took a knife and stabbed Mr Mokaya on the back, forehead and legs.
A fellow teacher, Mr Elvis Maoto, who attempted to intervene was also stabbed before his staff mates managed to restrain the student.
The two teachers were then rushed to Ram Hospital in Kisii where they are nursing injuries.
One of the teachers is currently in with deep cuts and is in critical condition according to Ram Hospital administrator Enock Abobo
The other teacher who sustained minor cuts was treated and is ready to be discharged.
