BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,5THJ JUNE,2018-Owners of kiosks and structures situated netters away from the main gate of the Moi Girls school early Tuesday held protests after the structures were demolished.Police were forced to lobby tears gas at the irate protestors to disperse them.The incident follows rape of the student at the school reported last Friday.
WWW.UPESINEWS.CO.KE has established that the demolition was as a result of the ongoing investigations that have revealed that the structures mainly shops surrounding the school could have been a hideout for criminals seeking to gain access to the school.
At least five male teachers and a number of male non-teaching staff at the school have been directed to undergo DNA testing to assist in the ongoing probe.
The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has since demanded that boarding schools have mandatory security features which include the installation of CCTV cameras in a bid to stamp out sexual molestation of students.
The union’s Secretary General Wilson Sossion in a statement explained that the institutions should also have trained security personnel, security perimeters and conduct routine checks to ensure theschool was safe.
