The school Principal Eunice Kihara said the school management opted to send all students home as many were traumatized by the incident.

Kihara said the fire broke out when the students were in their classes saying it was not clear what caused the inferno.

“After parents got information about the incident, they started streaming in the school to pick their children and we are expecting to reopen the school very soon after putting everything in order,” said the Principal.

Murang’a East Deputy County Commissioner, Kepha Marube said the boy is suspected to be a ringleader of group of boys who are perpetuating incidents of fire in schools in the area.

He said there are other boys who are at large and police are still pursuing to arrest them saying they will not allow students to continue destroying schools’ property.
