By Shadrack Nyakoe

Parents and Guardians of Jonathan Gloag Academy (JGA) are accusing police of intimidation and harassment in a dispute with the school’s board.

The controversy centers around the retirement of the school’s headteacher in March 2024 and a subsequent peaceful picket organized at the school by the parents on 2nd April 2024.

Parents claim proper notification was given to Langata police station and acknowledged by the OCS who provided security on day of the picketing.

But three parents were later singled out and summoned to Langata Police Station three times now.

The last time they answered summons was on 23rd May 2024 when they were ordered to report to the station and reportedly subjected to harassment and intimidation by the CEO of Kenya Children’s Home UK, Collins Oywera, in the presence of the police.

The three parents were presented with false charges of threatening to kill Oywera and malicious damage to property during picketing on 2nd April and required to pay bail of Ksh 40,000 each.

Police also allegedly manhandled parents.

Jonatan Gloag Academy Parents and Guardians believe that Oywera is using police to settle the pending dispute between parents and the Board.

The three parents are expected to appear at Kibera Law Courts on Wednesday 29th May 2024 to answer the trumped-up charges of: threatening to kill and malicious damage.
