It is Third Term, and also a rainy season where risks of lightning strikes are possible.
Preventive measures need to be put in place to mitigate calamities, especially thunder strikes that have previously claimed many lives, particularly children while at school. Schools should ensure they install lightning arresters on buildings as a safety measure against any danger during this heavy rain season.
Also, district inspectors of schools together with area local council leadership, especially the Secretary for children affairs, need to monitor schools in their vicinity in to ensure installation of the lightning arrestors. Report schools which fail to install lightning arrestors and those perpetuators of child abuse by calling the toll free Child helpline number 116 for immediate action.
Secretary General, National Council for Children
