We had wanted to bring it down BEFORE it fell, but were unable to avoid paying a heavy License to the County Council. The Bye Law says that we cannot erect any structure, even a temporary one, and even if it is to assist us repair our own wall, at our own expense, if the said structure stands on County land. We had no choice but to hang on.
Days and month went by and the Wall, continued to lean, progressively outwards.
We are already on the way to clearing the area, and have already built a Screen to protect our back yard (now exposed to all and sundry). We have built the screen on our land, inside of the fallen wall. The length of wall fallen stretches as I said above some twenty three meters, from the back of our house right up to the Director's Officer.

THESE ARE NOT OUR BOYS, but they could be, and right now we DO have some teenagers who are going this way - the Marijuana or BHANGI way, as it is called here in East Africa. The Kenya National Institute of Drug Abuse has put High School kids as using Bhangi, more than any other Substance; more than 36% of them. And it does not arise only among High School students, but even in much younger age groups. The incidence in our School at the current time is NOT so high, but it IS increasing, and we are determined to wage war against it, and to do our best to eradicate it from our premises. Every day some 600 boys and girls aged from 5 to 18 are coming in and out of our School, together with 130 more from our Homes. And Bhangi is being found increasingly! We do of course take action when we do find this drug. But we want to altogether prevent it from ever finding a welcome into the life or experience of even one child. This will not be easy in a climate which does not take Marijuana seriously.
