We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

A student was on Monday attacked and injured by a spotted hyena as she was walked to school in Ongata Rongai, Kajiado County.

Unrelated Spotted Hyena.

The Form 2 student had just left home at 6 am and walked along Gataka Road as she headed to Olkeri mixed secondary school, according to her principal, Simon Muchina.

Muchina said on receiving the report of the attack, he rushed to the scene and found the student had been rushed to Ongata Rongai health centre to receive first aid.

“A good Samaritan picked the student who was bleeding from the head and hands but mistakenly left a man who had saved the girl from the beast,” said Muchina.

The principal said after interviewing the man, he was told there were three hyenas but the injured student insisted it was one hyena and its two cubs.

He said the student was later admitted to Mbagathi Hospital in Nairobi, where she was later discharged.

“Doctors told me the student suffered a fracture on one of her hands. The man who saved her was also treated and discharged from Ongata Rongai health centre,” said the principal.

After reporting the matter to Kenya wildlife Services, the Principal was advised to record the statement of the attack at Ngong police station.

A communiqué from KWS warden in charge of Kajiado North Sub County, Rose Malenya, said she immediately dispatched a team to check the report.

“I can confirm the incident occurred in bushes between Gataka and the school. In the meantime, community members are advised to avoid walking through forests earlyin the morning or late in the evening,” said Malenya.

Malenya added; “This forest has been wildlife habitat for many generations. It is humans who have encroached, and therefore escalating conflicts. However, occasionally we patrol the area early to remove some of the animals.”
