Police in Laikipia County have arrested a woman for allegedly withdrawing her children from school.
36-year-old Esther Njeri from Nanyuki is said to have pulled her two kids out of school, claiming that education is satanic.
Area Chief said the two children, a 13-year-old Form Two girl and her eight-year-old brother who is in primary school, did not report to school when in-person learning resumed early last month after a nine-month disruption occasioned by the outbreak of COVID-19.
Ironically, Njeri holds two bachelor's degrees—one in Commerce and another in Accounting.
Neighbors said Njeri recently began warning friends and relatives to repent their sins before the end of the year, saying that the end of the world was nigh.
She also declared that she was ready to face the law, and likened her tribulations to the Biblical Shadrack, Meshack, and Abednego.
Njeri is currently being detained pending arraignment in court to face charges of denying the children the right to education.
