School property destroyed as students strike

16 October 2012, 16:40 James Kabotia

Form one, two and three students of Doldol Boys Secondary school in Laikipia North have been sent home after Monday night’s strike.

The unrest made the school’s board of governors to promptly hold an emergency meeting where they opted to suspend in a bid to save the fourth form students who are seating for their exams this week.

Speaking to press in his office, the district education officer Nebert Andika, said that the students hurled stones at their classrooms and other essential school facilities, causing a massive damage of the entire school.

“They destroyed solar panels, window panes and other valuable properties belonging to the institution”, said Mr. Andika.

He added that on that material night, the students eloped into the nearby forest while screaming on top of their voices. Area security force tried to pursue them but in vain.

Mr. Adika continued that the students complained of poor quality of food provided by the school amongst other grievances.

“How can they be complaining of poor quality food yet the form fours ate the same meal and did not complain? We will look into the matter because we feel that food is not their excuse for going into rampage”, the DEO added.

He said that the 400 students will be informed on when to resume their studies, adding that those responsible for the unrest will be dealt with accordingly.

“The school administration has handed to me the stock of the property destroyed”, he said.
