Students from Anestar Boys High School in Nakuru who broke into Anestar Precious Girls Secondary School have been expelled.
Reports indicated that 70 Form Four students will now have to sit for their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) at home.
The school said the students will have to make arrangements on their own accommodation as they sit for the remainder of their KCSE
Earlier police officers from Githioro Police Station confirmed they had arrested 10 male KCSE candidates after they invaded the Girls school in the area and caused a commotion.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), a group of boys from Anestar Bahati Boys in Nakuru left their school and invaded Anestar Precious Girls secondary school dormitory for unknown reasons.
Police officers trooped to the school and were surprised when the boys did not flee when they saw them.
They were forced to fire in the air to disrupt the rowdy boys but several candidates managed to escape while ten were arrested.
Here is the full DCI statement on the incident:
Ten KCSE students from Anestar Bahati Boys in Nakuru, are in custody after they broke into a girl’s dormitory in the nearby Anestar Precious Girls secondary school. The boys whose mission still remains unclear, had sneaked out of their school in their numbers and gained access to the girls’ dormitory under the cover of darkness.
However, officers from Githioro Police Station responded swiftly and rushed to the school after the girls raised alarm. But not even the arrival of our men would scare away the defiant boys who kept hovering around the dormitory forcing one of the officers to fire in the air to scare them away.
Officers managed to arrest 10 of them, as others escaped in the dead of the night. The arrested were placed in custody at Dundori Patrol Base, pending further action.
