Protesting students block the Cabinet Secretaries' path.

Cabinet Secretaries Dr Fred Matiang’i (Interior), ICT's Joe Mucheru and their Education counterpart Prof George Magoha attended a fundraiser at Riokindo Boys Secondary school in Kisii County on Friday.

They were initially blocked from the venue by protesting Riokindo Girls students who were waving placards with writings of projects they wanted implemented.

Efforts by Dr Matiang’i to persuade the students to let the leaders proceed to the boys’ school with promises that they will visit theirs too fell on deaf ears.

Their security detail swung into action, prompting a stampede.

Dr Matiang’i later gave the girls school Sh4.8 million for the construction of a science Laboratory.
