Two dormitories torched in arson attack
Dormitories in two schools were on Sunday burned down in Kuresoi South, Nakuru County in what appears to be a planned arsonist attack, police have confirmed.
The Keringet Boys and St Josephs Kirandich dormitories were burnt down on Friday at 8.30pm and 10.30am respectively by unidentified people, reducing property of unknown value to ashes.
Speaking at St. Josephs Kirandich Secondary School during a tour to the two affected schools, Kuresoi South MP Zakayo Cheruiyot asked the arsonists to surrender, warning that action would be taken against them.
The MP further called for speedy investigations into the incidents.
Area police are holding a teacher at the institution awaiting arraignment in court on Tuesday after he was mentioned during preliminary investigations.
Meanwhile, the deputy principal of Kamama High School in Embu County and one student were injured after form four students went on a rampage on Sunday.
According to reports, the students were angered after they were denied time to interact with female students from another school that had visited for a symposium.
According to the school’s principal Obadiah Kariuki, they were unexpectedly woken up at around 11 pm by students’ noises as they smashed classroom and dormitory windows.
Confirming the incident, Embu North OCPD Karisa Kadzomba noted that the students were not pleased by the school’s new rules that included restriction to socialise with visitors and introduction of a new dress code.
