Friends School Kamusinga Principal, Challenges, Notable Alumni And Performance 

The current Principal of Friends School Kamusinga is Mr Alex Maina Kariuki. Before joining this academic powerhouse in Bungoma county, Mr Maina held the same position at Oloolaiser high school.  His leadership style has been unorthodox and a talking point in the country. The principal wears the school uniform from Monday to Friday. One of the reasons he gives why he wears the uniform is so that the students can identify with him and “get to their level and be reachable in case they have a need because the uniform puts people on the same bar.”

It was rather unfortunate when Bungoma county MCAs with the blessings of the county Governor Wycliffe Wangamati frogmarched the FSK principal out of office when he joined the institution in January 2018. Making good his threat to evict Mr Maina, the county governor stated that the principal past performances on his previous post was wanting. Even after the attempted manoeuvrings of the local leadership, the principal managed to survive the attempted coup and remains firmly at the driving seat of the school.
