Moi Girls High School, Nairobi, has been closed for one week following allegations emerged that a student was raped and two others assaulted on Friday evening.

Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed made the announcement on Sunday morning after holding a second meeting with the school management at the institution.

The CS held another meeting that ran late into Saturday night as parents stormed the school last evening demanding to go home with their children.

The parent’s demands were, however, refused with the management insisting that the students would be allowed to leave on Sunday morning when it is safe.

It is alleged that a Form 2 girl was assaulted and raped while going to the washrooms at around 2am. She is said to have been attacked by three men who had made their way into the dormitory under unclear circumstances.

The CS also said the government will conduct a security assessment at the institution, adding that they will use the incident to formulate a security policy for schools countrywide.

She, however, said investigators need more time to probe the incident, vowing to ensure all those responsible are brought to book.
