Kisumu Girls’ High School has been closed indefinitely following the students unrest on July 2 that destroyed property.

The protesting girls accused the management of the institution of high-handedness and running down the facility.

Kisumu County Director of Education Sabina Aroni said the students were aggrieved on entertainment sessions and freedom of worship.

A section of the students who spoke to Standard Digital also said they were not happy with ‘poor diet’ they were being offered.

In the Sunday night rampage, they destroyed window panes at the administration block and the head mistress’s house.

Police were called to restore calm.
