Dozens of people including parents and former students, have held a demonstration at a boarding school in Nairobi, to protest the alleged rape of students.
According to students, three men entered the girls’ hostel in Moi Girls High School, and sexually assaulted three girls over the weekend.
The school has been closed for one week following allegations. According to Kenya’s Education Cabinet Secretary, Amina Mohammed the closure will allow police and her ministry to conduct investigations into the reported assault on a Form 2 student at the national school. Amina further directed officers from her ministry to conduct a review of schools’ security to avert any possibilities of break-ins. Already the Directorate of Criminal Investigations has ordered all male employees at the school to undergo DNA test.
A police source revealed that the investigation is targeting one of the male teachers who is suspected to have been involved in the incident.
