BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,10TH JUNE,2018-After a week of closure following reported rape of a student, Moi Girls School Nairobi, re-opens Today (Sunday 10.6.2018).
This comes a day after Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed appointed a new nine-member interim board.
The school was closed last week when a student alleged that she had been raped, prompting an investigation that is now targeting some male teachers and workers.
The school principal Jael Mureithi has since resigned over the issue with the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) having replaced her with Deputy Principal Florence Omusula in an acting capacity.
The CS while addressing the press early this week when she made the announcement to sent the school’s board packing assured that adequate security measures have been put in place to guarantee the students their security.
Amina said the decision to re-open the school was reached after studying the preliminary report on investigations into the rape claims, even though the final report is not yet out.
The new board is made up of senior officials drawn from the Education ministry and the Teachers Service Commission.
